Foundation for Financial Planning

The Foundation for Financial Planning (FFP) is a national, Washington, DC-based 501(c)(3) charitable organization, solely devoted to supporting the delivery of pro bono financial planning to at-risk populations, including active military members and wounded veterans, people with cancer and other serious medical diagnoses, seniors and family caregivers, low-income individuals and their families, domestic violence survivors and many more. Dedicated to powering pro bono financial planning, FFP has provided more than $8.3 million in grants to national and community-based pro bono programs; worked with partners to activate more than 24,000 financial planners to volunteer their time and talents; and acted as a leader and catalyst to foster a rich tradition of pro bono service across the financial planning profession.

In collaboration with our national strategic partners, FFP focuses specifically on engaging CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ professionals in pro bono activities. Often called the “gold standard” for financial planning professionals, the CFP® credential represents a high level of ethics, professionalism, competency, and experience. Through these efforts, we seek to raise the visibility of pro bono service and fuel a movement across the financial advisory profession.
