About the DoughMain Education Foundation:

The Mission: The Mission of DoughMain Education Foundation (DMEF) is to build financial literacy in students through engaging programs delivered directly to schools and homes.

In the wake of the 2008 global recession, the DoughMain Education Foundation (DMEF) was founded over a three-year period of extensive discussion and planning among New Jersey parents, educators and entrepreneurs with a focus to promote lifelong financial literacy, responsibility and ethical financial behavior among youth.  Through discussions with educators, the group determined that if substantive, core-compliant, easily-implemented curricula, supportive materials, and teacher support could be developed and made available to school districts across the country, the group’s core objective in providing direct support of a lasting nature to schools and their students nationwide would be met. Out of this, the DoughMain Education Foundation was formally incorporated in New Jersey in 2012, and in 2013 was granted IRS tax-exempt status under section 501(c)(3) as a Public Charity.

Organizational Goals and Programming: 1) DMEF is committed to expand implementation and sustain continuous improvement methods that serve to further enhance our FitKit Curriculum. Additionally, we are working towards expansion to 10 school districts by the fall of 2016/spring of 2017. 2) DMEF is committed to the continued enhancement and evolution of content specific original animated videos. DMEF’s content specific videos are designed to engage students and provide situational awareness of and need for skills related to personal financial management. We are working towards the completion of all 8 unit videos with the addition of 18 additional lesson videos. 3) DMEF is committed to the continued enhancement and evolution of Teach-the-Teacher components. DMEF is working towards the refinement of over 1,000 pages of PowerPoint slides and the creation of 8 Teach-the-Teacher webinars, and will collect qualitative and quantitative information on the presentations that supports them as being valuable Financial Literacy professional development tools for educators.
