Fiserv,
Inc.
(NASDAQ: FISV), a leading global provider of financial services
technology solutions, and the Milwaukee
Bucks
today announced their support of Milwaukee-based nonprofit SHARP
Literacy
, with a focus on helping students build financial
intelligence and entrepreneurial readiness.

The support of Fiserv and the Milwaukee Bucks will enable SHARP Literacy
to incorporate financial literacy education into its existing “Design
through Code” program, which teaches technology, life skills and design
thinking. SHARP Literacy will also be able to expand the program to
fourth graders in additional local schools and extend the course to 18
weeks, bringing the program to 10 total schools across Milwaukee and
Waukesha, Wisconsin.

Fiserv works with thousands of financial institutions, companies and
consumers around the globe to create and deliver exceptional financial
experiences, and is committed to serving the communities in which it
operates through its Fiserv Gives Back initiative. This places the
company in a unique position to help promote financial intelligence, or
#fintelligence, which goes beyond financial literacy to empower people
to take more control of their financial lives and reach personal goals.

“Moving and managing money is an essential part of daily life, and we
recognize that behind every transaction is a person, a family and a
community,” said Jeffery Yabuki, President and Chief Executive Officer,
Fiserv. “Fiserv is helping elevate financial literacy conversations to
assist people in making better financial decisions. Our support of the
SHARP Literacy program will help educate students about money management
and financial skills, setting them on the path to a lifetime of
financial intelligence.”

The enhanced SHARP Literacy program will culminate in a design challenge
held at Fiserv
Forum
, where students will apply their knowledge of coding,
financial literacy and design thinking to develop a prototype solution
to an identified problem. Fiserv and Milwaukee Bucks employees will have
the opportunity to volunteer at the design event as well as in SHARP
Literacy program classrooms.

“The Bucks organization makes it a priority to create sustainable
connections with youth across Wisconsin,” said Peter Feigin, Milwaukee
Bucks and Fiserv Forum President. “We’re excited to support the growth
of ‘Design through Code’, which will give Fiserv and Bucks employees a
great opportunity to be mentors while providing youth a world-class
environment to showcase their innovative ideas for the future.”

“Our goal is to provide students with the education and experience they
need to increase their confidence in learning,” said Lynda Kohler,
President and Chief Executive Officer, SHARP Literacy. “By making it
possible for us to incorporate financial literacy into our program,
Fiserv and the Milwaukee Bucks are helping children build a critical
skill that will benefit them throughout their lives.”

Going beyond Financial Literacy Month in April, Fiserv will continue the
conversation on financial intelligence with its thousands of financial
industry clients at the upcoming Fiserv client conference, Forum, the
name of which was the inspiration for the new home of the Milwaukee
Bucks. During the event executives from banks, credit unions, wealth
management firms and other consumer-facing companies will engage around
the cause of empowering consumers to take greater control of their
financial lives.

In a world moving faster than ever before, Fiserv helps clients deliver
solutions in step with the way people live and work today – financial
services at the speed of life. Learn more at fiserv.com.
