Welcome to the Financial Integrity wiki

We created this wiki to share what we've learned and make this the “go to” place for people looking to integrate financial integrity into their lives. We invite you to join and help build a thriving network of committed “FI'ers”. Add your expertise, advice and stories. So whether you’re just getting started or want to reconnect, find the information, tools and support you need to maintain momentum for the long haul. About the Program | What is a Wiki?


Free practical tools grounded in financial wisdom

If you're new to the Financial Integrity program, get ready for a fundamentally different approach to personal finance. This program helps you transform your relationship with money-whether your goal is to get out of debt, become financially independent or align your financial decisions with your personal values.


Tools, tricks and examples
Share with your fellow program participants how you've overcome struggles or achieved success with the program. Post that new spreadsheet format you developed to more easily track spending. Invite people to your study group. Lead by example.


Calling all coaches, instructors and organizations
We have created program materials-free and fully downloadable, filled with everything you need to share the Financial Integrity message with others via classes, workshops and seminars.

The Financial Integrity program has its roots in the groundbreaking work of the late Joe Dominguez, co-author with V. Robin of the best seller Your Money Or Your Life.

Founded in 1984 to disseminate the proceeds from Joe’s original seminar recordings, NRM continues via this web site to support people in transforming their relationship with money, and aligning their finances with their values.

New Road Map Foundation (NRM) freely offers the Financial Integrity material to anyone who can benefit from them, only asking that it be used and shared in the same spirit.
