Zinpro Corporation Promotes Economic Equity and Inclusion in Minnesota Through Support of The FoolProof Foundation

Zinpro Corporation, a pioneer in the development of performance trace minerals that improve the health and wellbeing of animals and people, has joined The FoolProof Foundation by becoming a State Sponsor.

“As part of our ongoing commitment to the U.N. Sustainable Development Goals, Zinpro supports the FoolProof Foundation’s goal of empowering Minnesota kids with critical thinking skills that improve financial literacy,” says Zinpro President and CEO Rob Sheffer. “These skills are foundational to alleviating poverty and promoting economic equity and inclusion in our community.”

Created in 2003 by the legendary Walter Cronkite and FoolProof’s Executive Director Will deHoo, FoolProof provides free, online, financial education content with a focus on promoting economic equity and inclusion.

Support from Zinpro allows the non-profit to deliver real financial literacy to more students in need. Specifically, funding brings educators in the St. Paul Public School System access to free professional development (PD) sessions and access to FoolProof’s dynamic online platform.

“Teacher PD sessions empower teachers with the classroom tools to teach a subject they may not be terribly comfortable teaching,” says Lennette Coleman, President of the FoolProof Foundation. “It’s amazing the impact these sessions have. It’s inspiring. This level of support will extend FoolProof’s usage throughout St. Paul and bring education to more students in need.”
