Our Vision

We see a future where children and families have tools and resources to make choices that allow them to confidently pursue their path to financial stability.

Our Mission

FamilyFutures graduates are financially capable and personally responsible. We achieve this goal by:

  • Establishing age-appropriate financial education targets for all public-school students;
  • Engaging the students in financial education using MyFuture savings accounts for each student, seeded in kindergarten and growing as the student achieves benchmarks in financial learning;
  • Encouraging families to role model for their children, and achieve their own financial success, by providing information sessions, tools, and counseling on financial issues, as requested, for parents and other adults.

Our Strategies
  • Every Rappahannock public school student has a personal savings account.
  • All students complete annual tasks to earn the maximum additional deposits.
  • Financial and personal skill building activities are integrated into the school curriculum to support state mandates for college and career exploration.
  • Students learn and demonstrate the value of setting goals and weighing choices that lead to lifelong success.
  • Parents and other adults build their own financial and personal skills through home activities with their children and through workshops and individual coaching.
