Team Stocks in the Future

 

Join Team SIF at the Baltimore Running Festival on October 21, 2017 to help Baltimore’s at-risk middle school students invest in their financial future and themselves!

Overview

Join 80 friends, staff, students, teachers and corporate partners to participate in the 2017 Annual Baltimore Running Festival as Team Stocks in the Future (SIF). This year, Team SIF will raise awareness for financial literacy education in schools and afterschool programs.

We are also raising funds to give interested Baltimore City schools, in the midst of funding cuts, the opportunity in 2017-18 to offer Stocks in the Future’s financial literacy and incentive program to underserved student populations.

If our team meets its $25,000 fundraising goal, 100 at-risk Baltimore City students can become financially empowered by participating with Stocks in the Future’s program. Be a part of Team SIF today!

Questions? Contact SIF at 410-516-6883 or sifadmin@jhu.edu.

“I’ve been in SIF since 6th grade. It’s cool getting to see your money rise over time. SIF has taught me to be careful with my money. The incentives are cool, too. This helps me know that I’ll get something for working hard. Throughout SIF I’ve learned so much about mutual funds, savings accounts, investments and shareholders. Shareholders are people who invest in companies – like us.” –Raven, a recent graduate of Hampden Elementary/Middle School
