03/25/2016 - AICPA


The American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) is the world’s largest member association representing the accounting profession.  With more than 412,000 members in 144 countries, the AICPA has a 129 year history of advancing programs to promote the public interest.  

360 Degrees of Financial Literacy is the national volunteer effort of CPAs to help all Americans understand their personal finances through every stage in life. It is designed to improve the financial capability of Americans. In conjunction with the efforts of the independent state CPA societies, the program combines grassroots financial literacy efforts with free resources for the public and tools for CPAs to educate Americans of all ages on financial topics.  


  • The 360financialliteracy.org website is the centerpiece of the financial literacy program, where consumers of all ages can find free resources to help them make sound financial decisions.
  • Feed the Pig is a national public service campaign developed to encourage Americans ages 25-34 to take control of their personal finances and make savings a part of their daily lives. Feed the Pig, which celebrates its 10th Anniversary this year, includes an interactive Feedthepig.orgwebsite, podcasts, and text message and email sign ups.
  • Feed the Pig for Tweens is a fun, hands-on financial literacy program for students and teachers in grades 4, 5, and 6.  Located attweens.feedthepig.org/tweens, the site includes resources for teachers and for kids, The Great Piglet Challenge.
  • Ready. Set. Goal! A 4-Week Financial Fitness Challenge. Did you know that the main reason why most people don't achieve their goals is lack of proper planning?  The AICPA invites you to commit to Ready. Set. Goal! A 4-Week Financial Fitness Challenge.
