Financial Capability Month
Minnesota state agencies celebrate Financial Capability Month, with a focus on expanding economic opportunity for all Minnesotans.
Governor Mark Dayton announced that April is Financial Capability Month featuring financial education events statewide that offer an opportunity for Minnesotans of all ages to learn how to focus on their financial goals, manage their money responsibly and protect themselves against scams.
“Financial Capability Month highlights how important it is for every Minnesotan to learn about making smart money decisions from kindergarten to retirement,” said Rothman. “We’re focused on educating and empowering Minnesotans to take charge of their financial futures, whether it’s children learning about the value of saving or adults learning to keep a monthly budget to track income and expenses.”
A wide range of organizations are planning events across Minnesota during Financial Capability Month, including Community Action Programs, Junior Achievement, Minnesota JumpStart Coalition, Minnesota Council on Economic Education, Minnesota Credit Union Network, AARP Minnesota and the Better Business Bureau.
