Our Purpose

College and Legacy Planning for Families Earning $150,000 to $450,000

Ginga Financial was founded by a teacher in 2007 to address financial inequalities between the American public school and college admission process.


Our Purpose

The purpose of GINGA Financial Literacy Inc., is to address the college money myths and financially position families to gain greater access to college funding and reduce the amount of student loans. Colleges invest in students for the purpose of them becoming alumni and contributing to their endowment fund. “Endowments represent money or other financial assets that are donated to universities or colleges.” Why not invest this money in the student? “The sole intention of the endowment is to invest it, so that the total asset value will yield an inflation-adjusted principal amount, along with additional income for further investments and supplementary expenditures.”

Colleges with the Biggest Endowment Per Student

“At Private Institutions, Revenue from Tuition and Fees Usually Covers Majority of the Cost of Education and Related Spending (E&R). The Subsidy Covering the Difference Comes from Endowments Earnings, Grants, or Private Gifts, Instead of Government Appropriations.”
