Financial Literacy

Building Strong Communities Through Financial Literacy

Since 2011, we have partnered with EverFi, a web-based financial-literacy program that has reached more than 18,000 high school students across our region at no cost to the schools or taxpayers. Students in 40 high schools have completed nearly 88,000 learning modules, dedicating more than 63,000 hours to financial literacy throughout the course of our partnership. Students get hands-on lessons about real-life financial needs, such as establishing good credit, saving for retirement, or paying student loans. We also support Junior Achievement and The Academy of Finance to inspire, educate, and prepare our future leaders to understand and manage their own—and their communities’— financial opportunities.
