Austin ISD Financial Literacy Program

Foundation 99 is a proud partner of Austin ISD’s Be Well Do Good program focused on the total wellbeing of employees—including mental, emotional, physical, and financial wellness. Since 2019, Foundation 99 has worked with AISD staff to focus on their financial wellbeing.

Empowering the shift of surviving to thriving for AISD staff.

Because financial dignity is for all.
Like Austin ISD, many public schools are located in underprivileged communities and often have employees who are struggling financially because they just don’t have financial understanding or make poor decisions which harm them further often becoming victims of predatory lenders and other schemes.

Think about the cafeteria workers, janitors or bus drivers, even teachers, who do not have the financial knowledge to help them make wise financial decisions. These are generational issues that are set to perpetuate without someone in a family breaking the cycle. We work hard to serve the unserved.

Through donations and grants, Foundation 99 provides financial education tools, resources and financial coaches at no cost to employees.
