Nasdaq Initiatives

Nasdaq wants to educate investors, market professionals, and the general public about responsible investment strategy and sustainable capital formation. We leverage the power of our organization—through advocacy, oversight, and philanthropy—to support those who join us in this effort. Our educational foundations provide opportunities and initiatives to support and deliver innovative programs and charitable activities.
