New York, NY (PRWEB) January 15, 2014
On April 25, 2014 organizations and individuals across the country will celebrate those who help others build their financial capabilities. Financial Educators Day, created by the National Financial Educators Council, takes place the last Friday of April each year.
This day of recognition takes place in April, which has been designated as Financial Literacy Month in the U.S. since 2003. The objective of Financial Educators Day is to provide an official opportunity to honor all the people who have contributed to the successful deployment of a financial education initiative.
Politicians, celebrities, and organizational donors have provided initial support to the NFEC to recognize the educators who contribute so greatly to financial education endeavors. According to Vince Shorb, the NFEC’s CEO, “It’s the individual educators in communities around the world that are creating positive momentum and helping to push the financial literacy movement beyond the tipping point.”
To promote Financial Educators Day (FED) the NFEC has built an Advisory Council of Founding Members, a coalition collaborating to increase the impact of the initiative and build momentum for the inaugural year celebrations. Anyone who wishes to contribute to this Advisory Council is welcome to contact the NFEC.
In surveys conducted by the NFEC people indicated a clear desire to recognize the financial educators who have done so much. The majority of votes suggested that Financial Educators Day occur at the end of Financial Literacy Month. As one survey respondent noted, “It will give us a clear time and framework to honor those educators that are involved in the financial education programming. We typically are in contact with them over financial literacy month so the end of the month works well.”
The National Financial Educators Council is a social enterprise financial education organization that provides comprehensive campaigns to further the financial literacy movement. The NFEC mission is to create a world where people are financially capable and able to make qualified financial decisions.
