National Financial Educators Day

Financial Educators Day recognizes those individuals who are working to improve the financial capabilities of people in their communities. While taking the opportunity to recognize traditional educators, we also extend our thanks to volunteers, financial professionals, concerned citizens, and others who teach financial literacy. All these individuals are invaluable to the effort.

Financial Educators Day takes place the last Friday of April (Financial Literacy Month) each year. Initial support from politicians, celebrities, and organizations in the financial literacy industry have transformed the last Friday of each April into a day of recognition, celebration, and advocacy.

Financial Educators Day launched in 2014 and takes place the last Friday of April each year. To date, over 400 individuals from 47 states have been mailed awards thanking them for their efforts.

Nominations for 2021 Ended April 16th, Apply for 2022 Now!
