April CARE Corner: National Financial Literacy Month
Hi Readers! April is National Financial Literacy Month and we just want to take a moment to say thanks for reading our blog!
Join CARE for a Financial Literacy Celebration During National Financial Literacy Month
CARE is holding a reception on Friday, April 20th at the Marriott Marquis in Washington, D.C. to celebrate National Financial Literacy Month and to honor retired U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Mary Grace Diehl ( Northern District of Georgia) with a CARE Lifetime Achievement Award for her 12 years of volunteer service with CARE. CARE will also highlight its national volunteer program, 2017 successes, and chapter highlights.
The reception, which will be held during the American Bankruptcy Institute’s Annual Spring Meeting, is from 5:00 P.M. ET to 6:30 P.M. ET and all benefits support CARE’s financial education mission. You can get tickets and more details here. Sponsorships of $1,000, $1,500, and $2,500 are still available. For information on sponsorships, please contact CARE Development Coordinator Ian Redman at [email protected]
Financial Literacy Month Events
April is National Financial Literacy Month, and CARE has big plans to spread awareness on financial literacy. For starters, join CARE at its Financial Literacy Celebration. CARE will also attend several Jump$tart Coalition for Personal Financial Literacy events. These events include the Jump$tart Annual Awards Dinner, the Jump$tart National Partner Meeting in Washington, D.C., and Financial Literacy Day on the Hill. Hill Day is a chance for Financial Literacy nonprofits, like CARE, to join for-profit companies and government agencies to express their support for greater education to Members of Congress and their staff. In addition, check back to this blog, as well as our Twitter Account and Facebook Account, for lots of great content on financial literacy, personal finance how-tos, and industry news.
