“HELP! I spend hours and hours searching for great resources, and often I can’t find what I’m looking for!”
We know how frustrating and exhausting it can be to find great resources. That’s why we spend hundreds of hours combing the internet for the best articles, videos, activities, interactive simulations and more.
“HELP! Even after I find great resources, it takes so much time to figure out how to organize them into an engaging and informative lesson!”
Finding the resource is only half the battle. We know you need to find a place for it in your lesson plan, create discussion questions and checks for understanding, and format it to fit your class structure.
“HELP! So many of the resources I find are great, but they’re already outdated after a few years!”
Depositing checks on your phone. Apple Pay. Person-to-Person online payments. Like many industries, personal finance changes rapidly. At NGPF, we’re always finding new resources, creating new activities and keeping up-to-date with the latest innovations and research. We update our blog with 5-10 posts a week, providing lesson ideas and questions of the day so you can keep your class current and relevant.
“HELP! I hate having to stick to one, scripted curriculum. I want the flexibility to bring in resources from different places!”
We know that you can’t teach at your best when you feel boxed in by the materials you’ve been given. That’s why NGPF lessons are easily customizable, and we encourage the “use what you want” approach. Whether you need an entire lesson with objectives and assessments built in, or are just looking for an exciting activity to spice up your existing lesson, NGPF can help!

What is Gooru? Why do I get sent there to view lessons and activities?
Our mission at NGPF is to connect educators and their students with fantastic resources. Building a custom platform to host all those resources would require hiring a large, expensive engineering team; we’d rather spend our resources developing great content.
We’ve partnered with Gooru Learning because they share our belief that educators are not customers of education technology, they’re creators. They offer a free platform to host our curriculum so we can continue to provide it freely to our community. Just like us, Gooru will not provide any information to third parties without your permission.
