April is Financial Literacy Month and when it comes to financial literacy, knowing how to manage your money is a big part. That’s why the “Money Smart Week” public awareness campaign was created by the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago in 2002. This year it falls on April 18 – 25th. The goal is to help consumers better manage their personal finances. This is achieved through the collaboration and coordinated effort of hundreds of organizations across the country, including local organizations like our Financial Planning Association of Michigan. Other involved include local libraries and corporations that are dedicated to promoting financial literacy (like the Center for Financial Planning!).
Programming is offered to all demographics and income levels and covers all facets of personal finance. Melissa Joy, CFP® and Sandy Adams, CFP® are again volunteering at their local libraries where they will be offering presentations to the public on financial planning topics.
