The MetLife Foundation, the giving arm of the nation’s largest insurance company, opens its grants program to support financial education programs to help low-income households and businesses become self-supporting and sustainable.
The Foundation’s Financial Inclusion Grant Program supports nonprofit organizations in three funding categories. They are:
- Access to Knowledge supports organizations with the ability to reach large numbers of underserved households around the world and work with them to develop financial strategies and capabilities to improve lives.
- Access to Services focuses on organizations that deliver high-quality services like savings, microinsurance, and credit to individuals in need.
- Access to Insights partners with researchers, academics, and non-governmental organizations to better understand the problems and potential solutions within the financial inclusion field.
Youth groups have benefited.
The World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts (WAGGGS) won an empowerment grants to girls and young women to develop their fullest potential.
