Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco

The Federal Reserve's responsibilities fall into four broad categories: 1) Conducting the nation’s monetary policy in pursuit of maximum employment, stable prices, and moderate long-term interest rates; 2) Supervising and regulating banking institutions to ensure the safety and soundness of the nation’s banking and financial system; 3) Maintaining the stability of the financial system and containing systemic risk that may arise in financial markets; and 4) Providing financial services to depository institutions, the U.S. government, and foreign official institutions.

Jump$tart Coalition for Personal Financial Literacy
http://www.jumpstart.org/
First convened in December, 1995, the Jump$tart Coalition for Personal Financial Literacy determined that the average student who graduates from high school lacks basic skills in the management of personal financial affairs. Many are unable to balance a checkbook and most simply have no insight into the basic survival principles involved with earning, spending, saving and investing. The Coalition's direct objective is to encourage curriculum enrichment to ensure that basic personal financial management skills are attained during the K-12 educational experience.

Young Entrepreneurs of America (YEA)
http://www.yeabiz.com/
YEA provides information and resources that lead to more frequent, more enjoyable, and more effective opportunities for students to learn about entrepreneurship which will enable them to become successful, motivated entrepreneurs.
