"For years, Wyoming's education community has recognized a need to provide more financial literacy training to our young people, but filling that need has been problematic. The Foundations curriculum fills that need perfectly."
CHAD BALDWIN, DIRECTOR OF INSTITUTIONAL COMMUNICATIONS
"We've seen that the value Foundations brings to schools helps to set us apart from other competing financial institutions."

Frequently Asked Questions
You asked, we answered. Here are some of our most frequently asked questions about sponsorships.
Can I write off a Ramsey Education sponsorship on my taxes?
Yes, you can write off any sponsorship expense paid directly to Ramsey Education as a marketing expense.
Why do schools need sponsors?
We believe the principles covered in Foundations are essential for thriving in today's economy and we want to see every student in America receive this education. But many schools don't have the funding necessary or the grants available to purchase this life-changing curriculum.
So we serve those schools by finding them a sponsor in the community to provide the curriculum. This creates a mutually beneficial relationship between the school and the sponsor and even more student lives can be changed.
How long does the sponsorship and curriculum last, and does it automatically renew?
Sponsorships last one year and do not automatically renew. It is our hope that throughout the year you will see how powerful this life-changing curriculum is, and you'll want to renew your sponsorship. Renewing your sponsorship year over year will deepen your relationship with your school(s) and your community. If you are interested, you can also purchase multiple years at a time, solidifying your place in the community for years to come!
How do I pick a school? What happens after I do?
You can select a school or multiple schools based on whatever best fits your business goals. Many sponsors choose to target a specific town or county, whereas others select based on need or other factors. If you're unsure where you'd like to sponsor, reach out to your Sponsorship Advisor so they can help you identify schools that are available in your area.
Once the school is selected and your sponsorship is in place, our team's work begins. We will reach out to the school and let them know that they've received a sponsor. Occasionally the school needs a week or so to determine their preferred delivery option (print or digital). Once decided, our team will ship the curriculum to the school on your behalf and we will deliver all sponsor benefits to you.
From there, the relationship between your business and the school(s) is established, and it is your decision of how involved you'd like to be! We're happy to help you maintain the relationship at whatever level of involvement you desire.
Will I be able to connect with the school, teachers, parents and students?
Absolutely, and we highly encourage you to! Initially, we will facilitate the relationship between you and the school(s), but once established, you can decide together what level of interaction you feel is appropriate and mutually beneficial. Many of our sponsors enjoy doing school visits once a semester to speak to their students. If you have other ideas or ways to collaborate, we welcome those as well!
How many students will go through the curriculum?
Each school is unique. Some schools have small class sizes and use the curriculum as a supplement, while other schools require a full semester of the curriculum for every grade level. Most fall in between these two extremes.
If you're looking for something specific, your Sponsorship Advisor can help you target an ideal school or schools in your community.
How many sponsors do you allow per school?
We allow one sponsor per school. This allows your business to build a strong relationship with that school, the teachers, and students.
What schools are available to sponsor in my area?
Simply reach out to your Sponsorship Advisor and they will create a customized list of available schools based on your targeted area(s).
What benefits will my business receive if we choose to become a sponsor?
- Impact your community through a high value relationship with school(s)
- Sponsor recognition and links on RamseyEducation.com
- Your company logo/name on digital portions of curriculum
- Certificate of sponsorship to display in your office
- Visibility into the impact the curriculum is having as it changes students' lives
- Press release sent to your local media highlighting your business
What impact will I see this sponsorship have on my business?
In addition to specific sponsor benefits, many of our sponsors experience many indirect or unmeasurable business rewards. Some businesses tell us they are no longer seen as just a commodity. Instead, they become seen as a trusted part of their community. Others express that by partnering with the Ramsey brand, their community is quicker to trust them!
Will my logo or name be seen by students and teachers?
Yes! Your business logo or name will be visible on our digital curriculum and will remain there for as long as your sponsorship is in place.
What do I do with a press release?
You can do as little or as much as you'd like! Ramsey Education has a public relations team who will create and send a press release to your local media outlets within one month of you becoming a sponsor. This press release will highlight your business and your commitment to financial literacy. A majority of these press releases get picked up and ran in local newspapers. In addition, we can share the press release language with you so you can also promote it on your website and/or social media.
What type of feedback can I expect to receive throughout the year?
Ramsey Education will work closely with your school's teachers and administrators to gather feedback and stories of students learning to win with money. Your Sponsorship Advisor will share these with you periodically throughout the year. Most teachers and students enjoy our curriculum so much that they can't wait to share their life-changing stories of how the curriculum is impacting their lives.
We're here to help.
And we'd love to connect with you!
