Financial Literacy Month is in April with Seneca Savings
Baldwinsville, N.Y. – April is National Financial Literacy Month and Seneca Savings spotlights through insightful series with experts, culminating with FREE BUDGETING for Financial Freedom April 27th, 2022.
Financial literacy and financial success go hand and hand. The pandemic has impacted our financial health in far-reaching ways. Learning how to streamline your efforts with your money will help the path forward go more smoothly for your family and your business.
In every time and season, Seneca Savings has been dedicated to educating our community on making smart financial decisions. Yet April has a special place in our heart.
In 2004, Congress designated April as National Financial Literacy Month to raise awareness about how to save, earn, borrow, invest and protect your money wisely. This includes educating our youth and instilling the financial skills and habits they need to build a secure future. Financial literacy is indeed focused on our youth, but here at Seneca Savings we believe it’s never too late to learn.
Throughout April in particular, we’ll be shining a light on the work we can do together, parents, teachers, business owners, and the local community to put us on an even keel and develop stronger financial skills and money mindset.
