We’re proud to announce the 2025 Fintech Pledge (pledge2025.org), an industry scheme led by Zopa, has partnered with The Money Charity to launch financial education for those hit the hardest by the cost-of-living crisis.
The programme starts immediately and will run until December 2025. Its first year of operations will be funded by Pledge2025 members Zopa bank and credit marketplace ClearScore.
What does it include?
The Money Charity will set out to reach thousands of people with its financial wellbeing educational training in a free massive open online course (MOOC), as well as through interactive workshops for smaller community groups.
The online course will be broken down into digestible sections that help participants better manage their finances, offering practical tips and actionable insights. The workshops will offer a deeper, more targeted dive into building financial wellbeing & resilience for those seeking more information after completing the online course.
Merve Ferrrero, Chief Strategy Officer at Zopa bank said: “After successful member growth over the last few months, the 2025 Fintech Pledge is now entering its next phase with the launch of a broad financial education programme to drive more financial resilience. We are thrilled to be supporting The Money Charity in this ambitious programme that will help Brits better manage their finances, leading to better financial outcomes for hundreds of consumers."
Michelle Highman, CEO of The Money Charity added: “We are delighted to be partnering with the 2025 Fintech Pledge to reach many more people with our vital financial wellbeing training and through the development of a new and exciting online offering. Now more than ever, we need to work together to reach and help as many people as possible.”

It will achieve this by connecting people to platforms that make savings work harder, improve credit scores, consolidate debt, and lower utility bills and household outgoing costs.
