Financial Literacy Month: Complimentary Resources, Participation Options, Tips & History

On March 9, 2004 Senate Resolution 316 was passed designating April 2004 as “Financial Literacy Month.” Senator Daniel Akaka [HI] sponsored the bill, which resolved to raise public awareness about the importance of financial education in the United States and the serious consequences associated with a lack of understanding about personal finances.

The bill states “that the President issue a proclamation calling on the federal government, States, localities, schools, nonprofit organizations, businesses, other entities, and the people of the United States to observe the month with appropriate programs and activities.”

To help other organizations fulfill the requirements of SR316, the NFEC provides complimentary personal finance resources and ideas for participating in Financial Literacy Month. We commend those organizations that are promoting financial wellness, and encourage you to expand your programs this year.

Financial Educators Day – Last Friday of Financial Literacy Month

The people who lead the coursework form the backbone of any Financial Literacy Month event. Instructors who lead the educational components of the classes have a direct relationship on the learners’ achievement. The NFEC’s CEO, Vince Shorb states, “Teachers are the single most important influence on student success. The qualifications of financial educators have direct impact both on short-term student outcomes and on their long-term financial well-being.”

To recognize those individuals who are working to improve the financial capabilities of people in their communities, the NFEC founded National Financial Educators Day. Financial Educators Day launched in 2014 and takes place the last Friday of April each year. To date, several hundred individuals have been mailed awards thanking them for their efforts.

The NFEC makes preparing for National Financial Literacy Month easy by providing complimentary workshops, promotions, guides and funding resources.
