The Royal Neighbors Foundation is a philanthropic not for profit corporation. We were established by Royal Neighbors of America in 2002 as a 501(c)(3) public charity to provide financial education and support causes that empower women and their families. 

Hopes, dreams, and goals are a part of life’s journey. How we achieve them is different for each of us. However, some of those hopes, dreams, and goals may need financial resources to make them a reality, and understanding our financial situation is key to our success.

Our Mission:

Building Women’s Futures Through Financial Education℠


Statistics show that women face unique challenges that impact their financial futures.

  • On average, women live longer than men. In 2012, life expectancy was 81.2 years for females and 76.4 for males.1
  • Women typically spend fewer years in the workforce while raising families and caring for others. Due to their caregiving role, women work 12 years fewer than men over the course of their careers.2
  • On average, women earn less than men. In 2013, the median woman working full-time all year earned 78% of what the median man working full-time all year earned.3

We help women successfully overcome these issues by sharing relevant information and practical tips to manage finances more effectively and with confidence.


Although it may be difficult to quantify your true worth as a spouse, parent, friend, or employee, you can gauge your financial worth. And that’s important when making financial decisions that affect your future of you as well as your loved ones futures. 

We know you have what it takes to plan your financial roadmap. We just want to go along for the ride and help you “recalculate” every so often.
