FOCUS FORWARD

Tools for a Strong Financial Future — presented by the Jake Peavy Foundation

To have somebody who groomed me to stay focused on the task at hand has helped me succeed at baseball and in life…when I was young and through different trials in my life, that’s what we did: moved forward.

– Jake Peavy

FOCUS FORWARD IN YOUR COMMUNITY

The Jake Peavy Foundation supports sports, music, and financial literacy programs that transform the lives of young people, particularly those in underserved and at-risk communities across America. In 2017, The Foundation partnered with education technology provider EVERFI to create Focus Forward and empower the next generation with the financial knowledge they need to lead healthy, financially responsible lives.

Jake’s vision is to offer the Focus Forward program nationwide. To bring this to a city near you or to learn more, please contact: Sarah Lauren Allen, Executive Directorsarahlauren@jakepeavyfoundation.com
