Jackson Charitable Foundation Donates Personal Finance Curriculum to 250 High Schools Across the Country this Fall


Contribution allows Ramsey Education to reach 20,000 more high school
students with life-changing financial education program

Charitable Foundation
, the charitable-giving arm of Jackson
National Life Insurance Company
® (Jackson®),
today announced a $500,000 contribution to Ramsey Education to sponsor
their Foundations in Personal Finance curriculum in 250 high
schools across the country this school year. The Foundation, which has a
mission to advance financial knowledge on a national scale, has teamed
up with Ramsey Education to ensure more than 20,000 high school students
have access to this critical, financial education program that teaches
valuable skills to prepare them for a life of financial freedom.

"We're thrilled to work with Ramsey Education and support educators
across the country as they get this important financial literacy program
into the hands of thousands more high-school students who might not
otherwise hear these valuable lessons," said Danielle Robinson,
executive director, Jackson Charitable Foundation. "Our dream is for
teens to develop strong personal finance skills that allow them to
understand the choices we all have with money and set themselves on a
path for success after they leave school."

The new partnership with Ramsey Education adds to the growing number of
financial literacy programs the Foundation already supports across the
country. The Foundation's signature program, Cha-ChingTM
Money Smart Kids
, is brought to more than 1.5 million elementary
school students annually through partnerships with Junior
Achievement USA
and Discovery
. Cha-Ching teaches basic money concepts to kids through a
series of three-minute music videos, classroom lessons and family
activities that show students how to Earn, Save, Spend & Donate.

Personal finance expert Dave Ramsey began Ramsey Education to address a
concern he heard regularly when counseling adults on money issues, "I
wish I had learned this in high school!" Thus, the creation of Foundations
in Personal Finance
, an easy-to-use, turn-key school curriculum that
teaches students the value of saving, spending and giving to guide them
down the path of financial literacy.

"It's critical that young people everywhere, regardless of economic
circumstance, learn sound, financial principles and make them part of
their behavior and daily decision-making," said Jim King, senior vice
president of Ramsey Education. "It was clear to us right away that the
Jackson Charitable Foundation considers it a privilege to support and
strengthen those efforts."

More than three million students have benefited from Foundations in
Personal Finance
in middle schools, high schools and universities
nationwide. Foundations in Personal Finance can be used as a
primary resource to fulfill requirements in mathematics, economics,
family consumer science, business mathematics and personal finance.
Educators who use this program see their students build confidence,
security and hope. They share stories of students going to college
debt-free, paying cash for their first car, or even helping their
parents learn about the importance of an emergency fund.
