Financial Education Program Partnerships
Countless sources have documented the benefit of merging knowledge from multiple sources for the benefit of helping clients, students, or the society as a whole. Hundreds, if not thousands, of other organizations are developing collaborative partnerships to help them achieve their goals. The purpose of this chapter is to explain the myriad benefits of partnerships, offer ways to locate partners for campus-based financial education programs, and present how to develop, maintain, and terminate partnerships.
