Our corporate social responsibility initiatives come under the banner of MFAA COMMUNITY.
Our core broker programs include:
The Global Money Week Initiative
An annual international money awareness celebration which engages children worldwide in learning how money works, including saving, creating livelihoods, gaining employment, and entrepreneurship.
The MFAA, in partnership with its members – finance brokers, lenders, aggregators and industry-suppliers – leads the way in delivering Global Money Week in Australia, encouraging members and their local community to connect with, start the conversation, and co-deliver these important financial literacy lessons to children and adolescents through schools, sports clubs and youth community groups.
The Global Money Week Initiative – Global Money Week presented all year round – calls on MFAA-member finance brokers to deliver pre-designed one hour financial literacy lessons to the school aged children of their local communities.
The Global Money Week Initiative lesson can be presented whenever you want – throughout the year!
Lessons are designed to be fun, simple to deliver, and age-specific, targeted at the age groups:
• Primary School children
• Year 7-9 High School Children
• Year 10-12 High School Children
The Global Money Week Initiative looks to teach children and adolescents important, but often overlooked, financial knowledge and skills – financial literacy – at critical times in their development.
