Washingtons first Money Smart Week set
SEATTLE (3/29/10)--Free classes and events helping consumers learn to manage their personal finances will be offered April 25 through May 1 statewide during Washington’s first-ever Money Smart Week. The week is coordinated by the Jump$tart Washington Coalition; Washington Credit Union League; Washington State Employees CU, Olympia; and the Washington Department of Financial Institutions, among others. It is designed to educate consumers about money management and generate awareness of financial education available on topics such as saving, investing and using credit wisely. Classes, seminars and activities will be presented by representatives from local community groups, financial institutions, not-for-profit organizations, businesses, schools, libraries, government agencies and media outlets. “There are many organizations in Washington providing financial education,” Jump$tart Washington Coalition President Amy O’Donnell said. “This is a way for them to coordinate, partner and share resources with their community while promoting financial education. We hope Washington residents will take advantage of the events to learn more about how to build and protect their personal finances--lessons they can pass onto the next generation.”
