“Changing Lives Through Pro-bono Financial Advice.”

    The NAPFA Consumer Education Foundation (NCEF) empowers consumers to achieve positive financial outcomes by supporting fee-only financial advisors in providing objective financial guidance on a probono basis. 

    NAPFA members’ commitment to Fee-Only services reveals a desire to act in the best interest of others.  Similarly, on a pro-bono basis NAPFA members support the underserved populations who need financial advice, but can’t afford it. 

    Please consider making a meaningful impact by supporting NCEF today. All contributions are tax-deductible and support the operations and programming of the organization.   We utilize these funds to make a life-changing difference for those with limited resources seeking a more secure future.

By making a monetary contribution to support NCEF you:

  • Take enterprising action on a cause whose urgency you experience every day

  • Ensure that NAPFA’s client-focused, fee-only values are strongly represented in the industry’s consumer outreach efforts

  • Support current NCEF pro-bono programmatic opportunities

  • Develop future national pro-bono opportunities for affinities you have served locally including the elderly, terminally ill, veterans, school children, women and those in poverty. 




Thank you to our generous NCEF donors in the past year*…
