Here’s your opportunity to have a sit down with investor and self-proclaimed “professional mistake maker” Ray Dalio.
Ray, Investor and founder of Bridgewater Associates, the world’s largest hedge fund, is hosting an exclusive ‘Lunch with Ray’ auction to raise funds to benefit CEE and bring attention to the importance of financial literacy for the next generation.
“The Council for Economic Education and I share the goal of helping people understand how money and economics work. I believe these skills are fundamental to people’s well-being and are often neglected,” said Dalio.
Dalio founded Bridgewater Associates out of his two-bedroom apartment in NYC and ran it for most of its 47 years, building it into the largest hedge fund in the world. His investment innovations (e.g., risk parity, alpha overlay, and All Weather) changed the way global institutions approach investing. Over the decades he has been a valued macroeconomic advisor to many policymakers around the world.

The winning bidder and up to two guests will join Ray Dalio for a private lunch on a date to be mutually agreed upon in New York City. Bidding closes on April 28th, 5pm ET. The winning donation is tax-deductible to the fullest extent allowed by law.

About the Council for Economic Education
The Council for Economic Education’s (CEE’s) mission is to equip K-12 students with the tools and knowledge of personal finance and economics so that they can make better decisions for themselves, their families, and their communities which connects to and strengthens our broader economy. We carry out our mission primarily by providing resources and training to K-12 educators and have done so for nearly 75 years. EconEdLink, our free online educator gateway for economic and personal finance lessons, attracts approximately 450,000 users annually and nearly two-thirds of the tens of thousands of teachers we train are in low- to moderate-income schools. CEE also provides young people with programs to prepare them for their financial futures and help them understand the economic impact of real-world events. Invest in Girls, our program for high school girls, and our National Economics and Personal Finance Challenges together inspire and motivate over 30,000 high school students annually. All resources and programs are educator developed and delivered by our nearly 200 affiliates nationally. We also advocate for more and better education in personal finance and economics, leveraging our biennial Survey of the States.
