A Social Venture for Colleges and Universities

The Save it Forward social venture helps colleges and universities promote economic equality in their communities and advance the financial literacy of participating students.

Designed in partnership between FoolProof and LMU College of Business Administration, Save it Forward combines FoolProof's industry leading online financial literacy platform with LMU CBA's institutional knowledge and expertise to provide you with a turnkey and comprehensive program from start to finish.

Save it Forward

  1. Addresses cycles of economic inequality by teaching financial literacy and life skills

  2. Cultivates relationships between participating colleges / universities with students of tomorrow

  3. Develops the mentorship skills of current students


  • "The Save it Forward initiative was designed to promote financial health and wellness to middle and high school students in the community. Thanks to FoolProof's unique messaging, it does just that. An added benefit, we realized, was the education it provides to our very own students.

    Whether addressing economic inequality in the community, cultivating impactful relationships between college mentors and younger students in the community, or enhancing the leadership skills of our student mentors, the Save it Forward program does it all."
