Attendees at "Industry Night" events are encouraged to make a tax-deductible donation in support of financial literacy. The funds go to the kasina Youth Foundation , a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that supports financial literacy through partnerships with W!SE (www.wise-ny.org) and Operation HOPE (www.operationhope.org)

Operation HOPE's Banking on our Future (BOOF) program has the overarching goal of helping youth understand the basics of personal finance and develop skills for building and maintaining wealth. The BOOF curriculum is taught in schools and community-based organizations and consists of five one hour modules that collectively empower students to make wise financial decisions and enhance their well-being. BOOF HOPE Corps volunteer facilitators present the curriculum and are trained to break down their knowledge of banking, credit, and investments into terms that youth can understand and utilize immediately.

Amongst other efforts, W!SE certifies high school students and teachers as being financially literate. Throughout the country, W!SE is currently in 426 schools. Operation HOPE trains volunteers across the country to deliver financial literacy curriculum designed to empower youth to understand the language of money and take control of their financial future. The kasina Youth Foundation is also actively evaluating additional partners on both a national and local level.
