The Actuarial Foundation Update

By Joseph Nichols • July 13, 2017 • 0 Comments
Happy Summer, ACOPA friends! There are some exciting things happening with The Actuarial Foundation these days. First, TAF has a new website that not only organizes the information in a more modern format, but also shows off our new look. We have spent the last year working on a new branding campaign that not only includes a new logo, but also creates a new image that captures our goal to be the premier organization proving support for math and financial literacy. This goal is achieved through the expertise of you — the actuaries.

The new website is at (same as the old url). Please be sure to check out the new “Support Us” button in the upper left-hand corner. 

One way we are increasing our engagement is by sponsoring a national math contest, “Modeling the Future.” The contest is open to all U.S. high school juniors and seniors. This year’s topic is Autonomous Vehicles. The scholarship prizes are quite impressive: the four winning teams will share $55,000 in scholarship money. The website for the contest is We encourage all actuaries to promote the contest and send the contest website link to any math teachers they know.

For those who support The Actuarial Foundation — thank you! For those who do not and would like to learn more about our programs, please contact me at Our actuarial profession has been very good to us and our families. Supporting our U.S. profession’s joint philanthropic mission is a great way to give back for our good fortunes. Thank you.

Take care,
