THe THIRST REMAINS for school classrooms

“Education is always running on a tight budget. Your donation gives one class the opportunity to have new curriculum resources. Thank you for caring about the financial education of our high school youth.” –
Teacher, Bremerton High School, Bremerton, Wash.


The Actuarial Foundation launched the QUENCH THE THIRST fundraising campaign to bring donated classroom sets of the Building Your Future financial literacy curriculum to teachers nationwide.

Engaging and informative, the award-winning Building Your Future curriculum gives teens a lifetime of sound personal financial and money management skills, covering topics such as credit cards, loans, investment risk and diversification, and managing bank accounts. The Foundation developed Building Your Future to reach these individuals before they face the challenges of life on their own and to enable them to make smart financial decisions today and in the future.
