In January 2020, the first branch of our Middle School division G.I.F.T. was created at our Alma Mater Fieldston Middle School (FMS). Our engaging curriculum teaches the basics of finance through an engaging curriculum. This program utilizes lessons, games, and challenges!

What is G.I.F.T.?
Girls In Finance Training (G.I.F.T.) is a weekly after school club for all middle schoolers who identify as womxn, including cisgender, transgender, and non-binary people who are interested in finance. Like other fields, Finance is male-dominated, which is often quite discouraging. G.I.F.T. is a supportive space for individuals who are traditionally left out of finance to pursue their interests in the field. In this club, we will learn about how the market works through lessons as well as using an online stock market simulator called MarketWatch. The end goal of the club will be for everyone to track one stock they are interested and report its growth and reasons to invest at the end of the year in the form of a presentation.
Interested in opening a branch of G.I.F.T. at your school?
"I learned whether or not to invest in some stocks and why... It was really fun to be in a group with girls that shared the same interests as me."
