Celebrate Money Smart Week



Are you financially literate? How about your kids? MoneyTips can help, but there may be something special soon going on in your neighborhood to help you learn more about personal finance.

Money Smart Week, a public awareness campaign designed to help consumers better manage their personal finances, will take place April 21-28, 2018. The effort, created by the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago in 2002, helped more than 100,000 Americans last year.

The annual initiative features events from coast to coast covering a broad range of personal finance topics, from credit and debt management to budgeting and saving. They are hosted by financial institutions, educational organizations, government agencies, financial experts, and community groups. 2017 featured 3,800 such events nationwide.

Financial literacy for kids is a priority for Money Smart Week 2018. Various financial literacy games are available on the Money Smart website, which also offers additional resources for teachers to use in the classroom.

To participate this year, check out the Money Smart Week calendar to find events in your area. Keep coming back to MoneyTips to get a handle on your finances and to learn the latest ways to make and save money.
