“Stocks In The Future”: Investing in Students
Tufton Capital Management is pleased to announce our firm’s involvement with the Baltimore-based charitable organization “Stocks in the Future.” This non-profit partners with schools in downtown Baltimore and provides a three-year financial literacy curriculum for middle school students in under-served communities.
“Stocks in the Future’s” mission is to develop highly motivated middle school students who are eager to learn and dedicated to attending class. The financial literacy program introduces Baltimore City students to business concepts, expansion possibilities, reasons for taking a company public, and ways to compare company performance. As students progress through the program, they can earn money in an investment account by attending school regularly and improving their grades. Their money can be used to purchase shares in a publicly traded company. When they graduate from high school, their hard work pays off, since they are able to keep the shares that they have purchased.
Tufton’s associates have been actively volunteering with the Program. Our employees have taught middle school math classes and have worked with teachers to help them better understand the Program’s curriculum.
Tufton Capital is happy to support the “Stock in the Future” organization, and we believe its incentive-based curriculum can make a difference in students’ lives.
