Promoting Financial Literacy

TheĀ Jump$tart CoalitionĀ is the original promoter of April as Financial Literacy Month, which evolved from YouthĀ Financial Literacy Day, introduced by theĀ National Endowment for Financial EducationĀ (NEFE) nearly two decades ago as an activity of its High School Financial Planning Program.

NEFE turned Financial Literacy Day over to theĀ Jump$tart CoalitionĀ to promote among its network of national partners and state coalitions. Jump$tart Coalition expanded the day and in 2000 when it began promotingĀ AprilĀ as Financial Literacy for Youth Month and later, simply Financial Literacy Month.

To mark the month the Jump$tart Coalition hosts two major events: the Annual Awards Dinner and Financial Literacy Day on Capitol Hill.
