Have you heard of the term 'financial literacy?' Financial literacy is know-how (or knowing how to access information about) budgeting, credit, home buying, financial planning, retirement planning, and much more.

Money Smart Week is a public awareness campaign designed to help consumers (of all ages) better manage their personal finances.

Free financial know-how

Colorado State University Libraries is hosting the nationwide campaign Money Smart Week starting April 5 thru April 12. Everyone is encouraged to take advantage of the free financial literacy programs that will take place in the Morgan Library’s Event Hall. 

Money Smart Week events are open to the public, refreshments will be provided at every program and there is no need to register.

Speakers, workshops offered

Students are especially encouraged to get a head start on taking charge of their financial lives. Look here for more information about the speakers and workshops that will be offered.

Program now active in 45 states

Launched in 2002 by the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago, the program is now active in more than 45 states through national partnerships with the Certified Financial Planner Board of Standards, Consumer Financial Protection Bureau and USDA (United States Department of Agriculture) Cooperative Extension and the American Library Association.

“Money Smart Week began as a coordinated effort among a small group of Chicago-area organizations working to promote financial literacy,” says Alejo Torres, Senior Outreach Manager at the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago.

“Today, Money Smart Week continues to expand nationally, providing greater awareness of, and access to, personal finance resources for all.”
