18 CUs deliver fin ed during Money Smart Colorado Week
DENVER (4/30/09)--Eighteen credit unions in Colorado demonstrated their commitment to financial education and community involvement during Colorado’s Money Smart Week. Beginning with a proclamation signed by Colorado Gov. Bill Ritter, Money Smart Week Colorado was held last week and offered state residents free events and programs aimed at increasing financial education at all age levels. Nearly half (35 of 84) of the educational events offered statewide were planned and hosted by Colorado credit unions. “Coloradoans saw more credit unions participating in the state’s Money Smart Week than any other financial industry group,” said John Dill, president/CEO, Credit Union Association of Colorado. “Supporting this important financial literacy program is one of the many ways Colorado credit unions invest in our local communities.” The week is aimed at building Coloradoans’ financial knowledge, enabling them to confidently and wisely manage their personal finances. The week is sponsored by Jump$tart Colorado, a non-profit financial education coalition, and is supported by credit unions and other financial institutions, businesses, schools, libraries, non-for-profits, government agencies and local media.
