Serving a Greater Good
FIS Group was formed to act as a catalyst for positive change. We seek to make a difference every day not only by connecting investors with innovative investment strategies and research but also by giving back. We organize and support impactful initiatives designed to foster financial literacy, democratize access to capital, and invest in the communities we serve.
A Good Measure
A Good Measure Foundation supports individuals and organizations that educate youth and work to improve the lives of impoverished or marginalized women and children. Founded by FIS Group in 2006, the foundation supports impactful initiatives, including a financial literacy program serving 40 to 120 middle school students at a local charter school in Philadelphia.
To participate effectively in our global economy, young people must learn to think critically and choose responsibly in their decisions as savers, investors, consumers, and members of the workforce.
In 2006, we launched the FIS Group Financial Literacy Program, an initiative designed to provide engaging and effective pathways to financial literacy and the development of skills essential to personal economic success. The program supports the Russell Byers Charter School in Philadelphia and seeks to improve financial literacy among students in low-income areas. The program incorporates rewards and incentives designed to reinforce the value of diligence, budgeting, saving, and investing. Over the course of the year, classroom lessons increase in complexity and are reinforced through active learning experiences, transaction simulations, and role-playing.
Funding for the program is provided by FIS Group’s 501(c)(3) affiliate, A Good Measure Foundation.
