April is Financial Literacy Month. In addition to month-long activities, the Carolinas Credit Union League will be celebrating Financial Literacy Day on Tuesday, April 17 in the statehouse.
The first Financial Literacy Month was recognized in 2004 thanks to a resolution from Hawaii Senator Daniel Akaka. The goal is raise public awareness about the importance of financial education in the US, and what can happen when you don’t understand your personal finances.
During the 2017 celebration, CCUL and multiple credit unions from across the state filled the statehouse rotunda armed with educational materials to show lawmakers and students the reason for the day. With a neighborhood credit union on your side, your personal finances don’t have to be stressful.
Credit unions are devoted to their members with a “people, not profit” attitude, and helping you succeed means providing the best education about your financial future.
We hope to see you at the Statehouse on April 17. You can also learn more about your finances on mysccreditunion.com.
