College Funding of America (CFA) provides live in-person and virtual workshops for qualified organizations to help empower the attendees in matters related to post-high school education - 2 and 4 year college degree programs. Many of the principles are also applicable for graduate programs, law schools, medical schools, and similar degrees.
All workshops are 60 minutes in duration.
Throughout the calendar year, CFA conducts regional public workshops as well.
Schools and churches include these workshops as part of their community education programs.
Business leaders often include these as value-added benefits for their employees and their families.
As part of CFA's commitment to community, some of the workshops may be provided free of charge to attendees and may also include a free one-hour personal college funding consultation with a college planning professional.
