Financial Freedom Changes Everything.
The economic success of our country hinges on the ability of all Americans to thrive. Yet, 7 out of 10 Americans — more than 200 million people — are financially unhealthy, struggling to make ends meet. Standing in their way to achieving Financial Freedom are obstacles and barriers, which can limit their ability to lead lives filled with choice, dignity, and prosperity. The Motley Fool Foundation is devoted to changing this narrative. We are committed to finding, funding, and building equitable pathways to Financial Freedom. Our goal is to ensure that all 200 million Americans living paycheck to paycheck have the best opportunity to be smarter, happier, and richer.

What happens when education intersects with Financial Freedom?
Numerous barriers arise when we examine education: alarming costs of higher education, socioeconomic influences, and the escalating burden of student debt, to name a few. What if we shift the narrative and search for solutions to break down those barriers? Let’s take a deep dive into financial literacy as a fundamental pillar of Financial Freedom, the crucial role of mentorship in a student’s journey, and the significance of working together to co-create solutions. Join our host, David Gardner, Co-Founder of The Motley Fool and Chair of The Motley Fool Foundation, and Christopher Morphew, Ph.D., Dean, Johns Hopkins School of Education, Office of Education Reform.
