About Us

Founded in 2016, FitMoney, Inc. is a Newton, Massachusetts-based non-profit organization dedicated to elevating financial literacy in New England and across the United States. To have impact at scale, FitMoney believes that financial literacy education must be adopted and integrated into K-12 education.  To facilitate this goal, FitMoney has developed a comprehensive K-12 approach including curriculum that is aligned to the Common Core.  

Based on research that financial habits are formed early in life, FitMoney introduces simple concepts beginning in Kindergarten, and then reinforces and deepens these lessons with 5-6 lessons per annum through high school.  Acknowledging that young people’s financial habits are influenced by the grownups around them, FitMoney’s program also includes financial lessons for families and for teachers.  To reinforce the importance of earning and saving, FitMoney offers a $50 match to families for 529 college savings plans and a 403(b)-retirement savings match to educators.

FitMoney launched a pilot program in several Massachusetts school districts (SY2017-2018) with positive results, has completed development of its K-12 curriculum, and is currently seeking rapid expansion.
