The Arthur N. Caple Foundation was formed to advance knowledge in the field of public sector retirement security. The Foundation, established in 2006 as a supporting organization of the National Association of Government Defined Contribution Administrators (NAGDCA), supports both individual educational opportunities and research to expand knowledge related to the importance of retirement readiness.
To accomplish its mission, the Foundation operates under the following principals:
Retirement Education - The Foundation is to provide higher education students with funding to study financial or retirement planning and to create opportunities for the students to participate in related learning opportunities.
Research and Information Exchange - The Foundation supports research, information sharing and collaborative endeavors that further retirement readiness and expand knowledge of retirement issues and solutions.
