The Center for Assets, Education, and Inclusion (AEDI) conducts research to inform the policy interventions that leverage the power of assets to improve the educational attainment and life prospects of disadvantaged children. This work is generously supported by leading U.S. foundations, including the Charles Stewart Mott Foundation and the Ford Foundation. We are actively working to build our capacity, so that we can support the Children's Savings Account field, shape the U.S. debate on financial aid and student debt, and advance a vision of robust opportunities for economic mobility. And you can help!

Valentine's Day is Saturday, and an investment in the transformative power of children's asset building is the perfect gift for anyone on your list! You can make a contribution to support AEDI's work at our website. Supporters will receive our newsletter, regular updates about new research and policy developments, and the joy of knowing that you are making a difference in the lives of individual children and redeeming the vitality of the American Dream.

Because ladders of economic mobility>box of chocolates.

Thank you for your support!
