​Members of the Financial Planning Association® (FPA®) have been committed to supporting underserved communities by providing access to financial planning services on a pro bono basis. This commitment has been a hallmark of the association since the turn of the century with the 9/11 tragedy and continues to this day - with the realities of COVID-19​ - through the hard work and passion of our members and chapters across the country.

To support underserved* individuals who are going to be most impacted financially by COVID-19 and the economic turmoil it is causing, many FPA members are providing short-term, no-strings-attached financial planning guidance to those who need it. In the coming days, we will update this page with links to chapters as well as their local community partners of which their respective Pro Bono team serves. 

In addition to the individuals listed below, underserved individuals will have a resource within the local FPA chapters and should reach out to the community organization to gain access to additional pro bono volunteers.​

The FPA members below are CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER professionals and have completed a pro bono training course through the association. If you think you can use some guidance, reach out and if they feel they  can help you, they will. ​If you engage a pro bono financial planner below, they will ask you to complete a letter of engagement that outlines what is entailed in the pro bono relationship and the expectations of all parties. The following list will be updated as more financial planners opt-in to provide pro bono assistance.

If you're an FPA member and want to volunteer to help in this important effort, we want to hear from you! Please contact FPA Director of Pro Bono Kurt Kaczor​ to let us know and to learn about the eligibility requirements.
