Pro bono financial planning can change lives, giving people in serious need a chance to achieve financial stability. Wounded veterans, domestic violence survivors, people with serious illness and many others can benefit enormously from the expertise of financial planners who volunteer their time and talent to provide free, quality financial advice. The Foundation for Financial Planning is the only organization solely devoted to powering pro bono financial planning.

We’ve highlighted four ways to find volunteer opportunities in your community.
