What They Are Saying


Rep Emanuel Cleaver

"Financial literacy is an invaluable asset that enables financial success. Not every member of our community has had the opportunity to acquire these skills, which is why programs like "Score A Better Future" are a great benefit to the people of Kansas City. This program represents an opportunity for all who attend to learn how to better navigate the forces that influence their financial wellbeing.”


– Congressman Emanuel Cleaver II
Sen Thom Tillis

"Financial literacy is crucial to helping North Carolinians manage their overall financial health and realize their American Dream. I want to thank FICO for holding this event for the residents of Raleigh and Durham and inviting me to participate.”


– Senator Thom Tillis
Sen Catherine Cortez Masto

"For Nevada families, understanding how to strengthen their credit scores and plan for specific goals is the first step towards financial success. I'm thankful that FICO is giving back to the community through this workshop and I'm looking forward to working with them.”


– Senator Catherine Cortez Masto
