Money Smart Week 2012
Learn More About Money & How to Manage It!
Washington State’s 3rd Annual
Money Smart Week® is a public awareness campaign designed to help consumers better manage their personal finances. This is achieved through the collaboration and coordinated effort of hundreds of organizations across the country including businesses, financial institutions, schools, libraries, not-for-profits, government agencies and the media. These groups come together once a year to stress the importance of financial literacy, inform consumers about where they can get help and provide free educational seminars and activities throughout the week. Programming is offered to all demographics and income levels and covers all facets of personal finance from establishing a budget to first time home buying to estate planning.
Grays Harbor College will be hosting several presentations and informational tables at the locations listed below. Click on each site listed below for an Event Schedule.
