Meet the People Behind the Programs
In April of 2010, Mr. Rosen announced the funding and official launch of a foundation to promote financial literacy, wealth education and financial independence among school-age children and adults. The Jonathan D. Rosen Family Foundation was funded with an initial grant of a portion of Rosen’s Entaire Global holdings. The Wealthy Habits program was developed as a primary initiative by the JDRFF to educate students on the importance of making smart financial decisions now in order to achieve a wealth of success in the future. His approach is focused on changing the way people think about money.
Ms. Tanner was recruited to develop a comprehensive program to advance the organization’s financial literacy mission. She has been the driving force behind Wealthy Habits. Her early success in building the brand and curriculum as well as spearheading expansionary efforts positioned her to take on the role of the Foundation’s Executive Director. Her efforts have made the Rosen Family Foundation’s Wealthy Habits program among the fastest growing financial education programs in the country.
