Choosing Independence Foundation is an American nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization whose programs helps students to attend college without incurring student loan debt. The programs are for students who have financial barriers that could prevent them from attaining a higher education due to lack of funds for tuition, whether from the inability to save or due to insufficient family earnings to pay for tuition out of pocket.
Choosing Independence has four programs designed to allow saving for college through spending. Boxing world champion, George Foreman supports the program by allowing his likeness on the George Foreman Debit Card. The Foundation's programs are described by the seemingly contradictory catch-phrase, The More You Spend, The More You Save For College. It’s motto is Education is Mandatory.
The Choosing Independence Foundation was featured on the June 10, 2018 episode of Building Business Icons, shown on the Fox Business Network, where Tony Hicks, co-founder of the Choosing Independence Foundation concept, was interviewed by former Shark Tank panelist, and creator of the infomercial, Kevin Harrington. Mr. Harrington is a supporter of the Choosing Independence Foundation.
