The Financial Reality Foundation was established to provide young adults an opportunity to learn about managing personal finances in a realistic, true-to-life way using the Get REAL Financial Reality Fair program. A reality fair allows students to make budgeting decisions (and mistakes) in a fun-filled, interactive learning environment. The event is a two-hour simulation provided free to schools and specifically designed for high school seniors where they make real-life choices about a post high school career and how to stay within budget while paying for necessities such as housing, food and transportation to name a few. Along the way, needs versus wants are tested as community volunteers sell vacations, puppies, hot-tubs and many more impulse spending items that can have a major impact on a budget. In the end they get to meet with financial advisors who bring the focus back to savings and thrift practices.
