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.
Nominate Educator for Financial Educators Day Award
The National Financial Educators Council will honor educators with a Financial Educators Day Certificate of Appreciation.
The only requirement is that the award recipient contributes positively to the financial literacy movement. Educators of all size programs are honored – whether you are hosting a smaller workshop or a large campaign, we appreciate and recognize your contribution to leading programs of any size.
Those recognized by the NFEC will be mailed a thank you letter and certificate. (U.S. residents receive physical certification in the mail; international residents receive an e-version). The 2020 FED award honored several hundred educators – nominations for 2021 are open now.
