The New Mexico Jump$tart Coalition is active throughout the year with meetings of the full membership, board and committees along with special events and projects.

What is Money Smart Week?

Money Smart Week is a public awareness campaign designed to help consumers better manage their personal finances. This is achieved through the collaboration and coordination effort 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. The effort was created by the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago in 2002.

When is Money Smart Week?

Money Smart Week will be held from April 23rd - 30th, 2016!

How did Money Smart Week start?

Since 2001, organizations have partnered with the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago to present Money Smart financial literacy programs. What started as the annual Money Smart Week each spring has blossomed into educational programming throughout the year at various locations across the country.

What are some topics that will be discussed?

Money Smart partners include community groups, financial institutions, government departments and schools; all present educational activities to promote financial awareness.

Topics include: Budgeting, understanding credit and much more.
