Pro-Bono Financial Assistance

The nation continues to navigate the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. All of us face unprecedented challenges that will require us to collaborate for the public good, including offering ways to support the millions of financially at-risk Americans who need financial planning and advice more than ever before. The pandemic has given us a real-time view of just how much having financial strategies in uncertain times can help manage issues facing American families. Read the Infographic 5 Strategies for Managing Finances in Uncertain Times.

As part of our COVID-19 community response efforts, members of the National Association of Personal Financial Advisors (NAPFA) are making themselves available to those in need. This effort is offered alongside the NY Times and offers people whose incomes are in jeopardy access to basic information about unemployment, tax waivers, lender moratoriums and other things that can help them stay afloat during this challenging time.

NAPFA members have long been champions for financial services delivered in the public’s interest. In alignment with that value, members are committed to supporting underserved persons by providing access to pro bono financial planning services. The NAPFA members listed below are all Certified Financial Planner™ professionals who practice under the Fee-only model and adhere to NAPFA’s Code of Ethics and Fiduciary Oath. These professionals are committed to ensuring that as many people as possible can access superior financial guidance when they need it most.

The list will be updated as more Fee-only financial planners commit to providing pro-bono assistance during this crisis. There is also a list of organizations that offer useful tools and resources for the public available here and tips on personal financial management during COVID-19 here.
