Every year, we honor one individual volunteer and one partner organization with the Lloyd Levin Difference Maker Award, recognizing their contributions to our founder's vision of financial education and empowerment for every teen. We're excited to celebrate this year's winners and their extraordinary impact.

As a young person, Rachel learned the importance of financial literacy in an unusual way: as a professional circus performer. Now, she passes on those lessons to others as a SecureFutures volunteer.

Since the organization's early years, Baird has partnered with SecureFutures through our shared commitment to volunteerism and community impact.

Thanks to the Wisconsin Association of School Boards (WASB) for featuring Money Path in the October issue of their official magazine, Wisconsin School News! We love hearing stories of how educators have used Money Path to support students in making informed decisions about their college, career, and financial future. Read more.
Happy 80th birthday, Lloyd!

Our founder, Lloyd Levin, is turning 80! Lloyd's vision and leadership have impacted so many, and we're grateful for the opportunity to celebrate a remarkable life well lived. We invited those with a connection to SecureFutures to share their birthday wishes. Here are a few of the many words of appreciation that came pouring in:

"Thank you for all you do, your impact, spirit, and wisdom will forever be an inspiration to all. HAPPY BIRTHDAY!"
Jeremy Cain, former Money Sense student and current SecureFutures Board Vice Chairperson

"Rare is the person who can take a dream, rally others behind it and bring that into reality for the benefit of thousands of people. I hope you take a moment during this milestone birthday to reflect on all of those lives you've helped to make better with your dream."
Justin Kern, past SecureFutures staff member

"Happy Birthday Lloyd! Thank you for your generous heart and all the good you have done for our community. Generations into the future will be stronger because of you."
Kira Lafond, SecureFutures Advisory Council member

"Investment people are encouraged to not use the word 'always,' but I will. Your impact on the lives of so many young people and their families will always be remembered! Thank you!"
Sara Walker, SecureFutures Board member

On behalf of all of the students, educators, volunteers, staff, and community partners who have been touched by your life and work - thank you, Lloyd, and happy birthday!
