DAVE RAMSEY’S FINANCIAL PEACE UNIVERSITY CELEBRATES 20 YEARS OF CHANGING LIVES

NASHVILLE, Tenn.New York Times best-selling author and personal finance expert Dave Ramsey is celebrating the 20th anniversary of Financial Peace University.

The class began in 1994 as “Life After Debt.” Since then, nearly 2.5 million families at more than 46,000 churches and community organizations have positively changed their financial future through Financial Peace University (FPU). The nine-week course provides families and individuals with practical tools to gain control of their finances and set themselves up for long-term financial success. 

“It seems like yesterday I was teaching this class with an overhead projector in a suit I bought at a consignment sale,” said Ramsey “The delivery methods have changed over the years but the content is just as successful today as it was 20 years ago. We’re honored to have helped millions of families have a game plan for their money and get started on the path to financial peace.”

Through common-sense principles and small-group accountability, FPU gives people the tools they need to change their behavior and succeed financially. On average families who complete FPU pay off $5,300 and save $2,700 in the first 90 days. Following the class, nearly 94 percent of those families budget regularly.
