We believe that financial education and opportunity can lift up people of all backgrounds, all around the world. We're working to reach them with information and resources that resonate.
Over the next five years, we'll double the number of small and mid-size businesses we support that are owned by women and people of color through product access, micro-finance, community development, and financial education.
Our commitment contributes directly to the following UN Sustainable Development Goals:
In 2022, we expanded our decade+ long relationship with EVERFI to launch a first-of-its kind national education initiative, DataSetGo, empowering high school students to explore higher education and careers in a high-paying, future-ready field. DataSetGo will set students up to build enduring careers and lifelong financial capability.
We know everyone faces important financial decisions every day. Through our collaboration with EVERFI, we’ve also curated a set of financial education playlists to equip learners of all ages with critical knowledge and skills needed to make the financial decisions that are best for them.
In 2021, Principal® Foundation collaborated with Kiva to engage in their International Women’s Day match campaign and their Gender Equality Access to Capital campaign. Our contributions supported 31,554 women-owned micro/small businesses in 35 countries.
