We can make a dfference, one hour at a time.

NAPFA members have the financial expertise and planning tools that can educate people, help them solve problems and create a financial plan that allows them to achieve their life’s goals.

Imagine if each NAPFA member volunteered even one hour each year providing pro-bono financial services to those in need. At 3,000+ members strong, our network of Fee-Only fiduciary advisors would make a meaningful impact on the communities we serve:

  • 1 hour per year per member = 3,000 hours of pro-bono service
  • 1 hour per quarter per member = 12,000 hours of pro-bono service
  • 1 hour per month per member = 432,000 hours of pro-bono service
