We can make a difference, one hour at a time.

One Hour Challenge

NAPFA members have the expertise and tools that can educate people, help them solve problems and create a plan that allows them to achieve their life’s goals. Imagine if each NAPFA member volunteered even one hour each year providing pro-bono financial services to those in need. Will you accept the NCEF One Hour Challenge? At 3,000+ members strong, our network of Fee-Only fiduciary advisors would make a meaningful impact on the communities we serve:

  • 1 hour of pro-bono services per year per member = 3,000 hours
  • 1 hour per quarter per member = 12,000 hours of pro-bono service
  • 1 hour per month per member = 432,000 hours of pro-bono service

NCEF is fulfilling its mission by guiding pro-bono planners to the partners below:
