The countdown is on to credit unions' financial education efforts as part of Money Smart Week, a nationally coordinated effort by partner organizations to improve Americans' financial literacy.

What

As Wisconsin event partners for Money Smart Week, credit unions improve consumers' financial savvy while positioning credit unions as Americans' best financial partner.

How

Events are posted at no cost on the event page of the Money Smart Week website. None of the events promote products or services.

Credit unions coordinate with local planning teams to publicize their events as well as publicizing it on their own through their own channels, including their member newsletters, website, advertisements, etc.

Free graphics and videos are available to help promote your events.
