THE 2025 EARLY INVESTMENT FUND PROGRAM

Accepting 2025 Applications Starting January 13, 2025

The Gouché Foundation is a pioneering philanthropic organization dedicated to empowering parents to secure their children's financial futures. Our 2025 Grant Program aims to match parents who open qualified investment accounts for their children, under the age of 18, with up to $1,000 in an early wealth fund grant. We are seeking to reward thirty (13) children whose parents have demonstrated a strong financial commitment to their child’s future. The foundation will award these grants to kids and their families who best meet the criteria established by the Early Wealth Fund Committee. Families interested in applying for one of our grants are invited to complete and submit the Early Wealth Fund Grant application between January 13, 2025, and May 13, 2025. Successful recipients will be notified in the summer of 2025.
