The Idaho Financial Literacy Coalition, a state affiliate of the Jump$tart Coalition for Personal Financial Literacy, provides resources, speakers, and opportunities to promote financial education across the state of Idaho.

Please join us in our efforts by attending a Coalition meeting, participating as a sponsor in our annual Piggy Bank Beauty Contest, or simply by having a conversation about personal finances with your own children, nieces, nephews or other children and adolescents.

Our Mission:

To improve the quantity and quality of personal financial information and educational programs of Idahoans by providing resources and education to teachers, youth leaders and others in need of assistance or at financial risk.
