FinEd50 continues to expand the coalition by partnering with the Association for Financial Counseling & Planning Education (AFCPE), a national nonprofit recognized as a leader in financial counseling, coaching and education. As a part of the FinEd50 coalition, AFCPE will expand our reach by integrating their dedicated communities of personal finance professionals into our advocacy network. Together, we hope to reach even more states and help expand access to financial education in all 50 states.
