Everything you need to Sponsor a Millionaire’s Club.
Being a Sponsor
Millionaire’s Club Sponsors play a crucial role in building successful, life-long personal finance skills for Club members. Being a Millionaire’s Club Sponsor is an effective, economical means of connecting with young members and their parents.
The Millionaire’s Club includes twenty-seven lessons designed to improve Club members’ personal finance skills. Those lessons are combined with an investment simulation, fun competitions, and an entrepreneurial project to create an engaging program for young members to enjoy in the classroom, or online.
Millionaire’s Club materials are provided digitally for school-based Clubs. Self-study, privately-branded Clubs are offered online through a Millionaire’s Club student portal where Club members learn at their own pace.
- Money Management
- Earning Power
- Financial Services
Each module is presented in four to five lessons with activities that can be completed in approximately 45 to 60 minutes each.
Club members can engage in local, regional, and national competitions including The Stock Market Game™, The Personal Finance Challenge™, and The Economics Challenge™. Nominal fees may apply to register for the Stock Market Game™.
Self-Study Millionaire’s Clubs
- With the self-study Millionaire’s Club, members engage independently (or with a few friends) in the 27-lesson online course, competitions, investment simulation, and entrepreneurial project, progressing at their own pace.
Privately-Branded Club Option
- Club Sponsors have the option of a privately-branded self-study Millionaire’s Club site bearing the Sponsor’s name and/or logo. (i.e.: Dollar Credit Union Millionaire’s Club.)
- Club Sponsors can offer the self-study Millionaire’s Club as a valuable asset for members (parents & students).
School-Based Millionaire’s Club
- School-based Clubs carry the school name (i.e.: Jefferson High Millionaire’s Club).
- Typically, sponsors provide school-based Clubs with seed funding as detailed in a Club Agreement. Generally, sponsors provide Clubs with annual seed funding of $500 per year through the Club’s first three years.
- School-based Clubs require school approval, recruiting a teacher to lead the Club, and attracting student members.
Teachers and school administrators register to access lesson plans, materials, and guidance on managing their Club.
- Sponsors may provide occasional guest speaking engagements on topics like “selecting a financial institution,” “responsible borrowing,” “preventing identity theft,” etc.
