Structured Finance Foundation and First Book
As the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic increase economic and social constraints on schools and businesses, it is more important than ever that we help one another. The Structured Finance Foundation is pleased to partner with First Book, a nationwide organization that is providing critical supplies to kids in underprivileged communities who are in dire need of assistance, whose purpose falls squarely within the Foundation’s mission of “helping those in need build a better future”. Please remember those around you in need and consider donating to the Foundation.
