Gooding Presents Financial Literacy Tour

Funding the Future Mission and Vision Statement

Our mission is to teach financial literacy to every student in America! We engage them with a live concert, inspire with the musicians’ personal stories, and encourage critical thinking during a spirited Q&A. They learn how to harness money as a tool to succeed, achieve dreams and change lives. Teaching young people to make smart financial decisions now leads to a better shot at success in the future!

Funding the Future is a tax exempt organization under section 501©(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. We can only achieve our goals with the assistance of generous donations from people who care about the futures of our young people. Without these donations, teaching these kids and their families nationwide would not be possible. Donate here.


GOODING came to Dunwoody High School today and they were FABULOUS!!! We had a mixed crowd of 9th-12th graders of many socio-economic levels and ethnic backgrounds. Gooding was able to connect with ALL OF THEM. The students were so enthusiastic about the music and the message. I heard kids talking about the band in the halls the rest of the day. I can’t thank you enough for helping to make this happen for the students at DHS.
