The College Funding Coach was founded in 2002 to help families better understand the complex strategies for paying for college and making higher education more affordable. Since that time, The College Funding Coach team has helped thousands of families decrease their financial obligation for college and increase their cash flow by helping them understand the means and mechanisms through which families can make college more affordable. The College Funding Coach has established an approach that helps parents understand the college funding process, reduce their out-of-pocket expenses, and balance the challenge of saving for college and retirement simultaneously.
Fischer, a certified financial planner, serves on the Board of Directors for A Kid’s Place of Tampa Bay and the Florida Holocaust Museum Investment arm (HHH). He is passionate about providing families with the tools and solutions they need to successfully plan for their children’s college funding without sacrificing other major financial goals.
