Financial Beginnings imagines a future where Nebraskans are better equipped to handle their finances.
We're a state-wide nonprofit that provides accessible and unbiased financial education programming to youth and adults in schools and community-based organizations across Nebraska.

The generosity of community members, volunteers, businesses, and foundations enables Financial Beginnings Nebraska to provide all our programs at no cost to learners and educational partners. In only our first full year of delivering programming, we helped nearly 1,000 youth and adults in the state become more empowered to take control of their financial futures.

Our Mission
Financial Beginnings empowers youth and adults to take control of their financial futures.
Our Vision
We envision a world where individuals cease to see finances as a barrier and instead view them as a tool to realize their dreams. In a financially capable and literate nation, individuals are vested in, and contribute to, a healthy economic system nationally, regionally, and in their neighborhoods.
Our History
When Financial Beginnings wanted to establish its first midwest affiliate in America's heartland, Nebraska was the first state that came to mind. Financial Beginnings Nebraska started offering educational programming in July, 2020. Despite setbacks brought on by rising COVID-19 concerns, the Nebraska office persevered and continued to serve local youth and adults during difficult times. Financial Beginnings Nebraska is now poised to provide financial education to more and more individuals across the state for years to come.

Since its 2005 inception, Financial Beginnings has expanded to serve both youth and adults, adding programming that educates and empowers elementary school, middle school, and high school students, postsecondary students, low-to-moderate income earners, vulnerable adults, and Spanish-speaking learners. In 2020, Financial Beginnings started offering online programming in addition to in-person instruction through webinars and eventually an interactive Learning Management System (LMS)
Making Meaningful Progress!
We're off to a good start during our first year delivering programming, but with a growing volunteer base we could do so much more!
