Filene CU ring NYSEs closing bell
MADISON, Wis. (4/13/11)--Representatives from the Filene Research Institute and the Brooklyn Cooperative FCU were among celebrants of Financial Literacy Week to ring the Closing Bell Tuesday at the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE). Filene Research Institute CEO Mark Meyer and Denise Gabel, chief innovation officer at Filene, joined the Center for Financial Services Innovation (CFSI) staffers Jennifer Tescher and Sarah Gordon to ring the bell. They were joined by funders of CFSI's Financial Capability Innovation Fund and the fund's five grantees. Filene and Brooklyn Cooperative FCU/Grow Brooklyn with Piggymojo are among the grantees. The fund supports initiatives that provide Americans access to the financial products and educational tools. It was the second day in a row that credit unions were on hand to ring the bell. Monday representatives of Biz Kid$, the Emmy award-winning financial literacy series on public television underwritten by America's Credit Unions, and the Washington Credit Union Foundation rang the closing bell.
