  1. About Money Smart Week Money Smart Week began as a coordinated effort of the Money Smart Advisory Council, a diverse group of more than 40 Chicago-area organizations working together to promote personal financial literacy. Michael Moskow, who was Chicago Fed president at that time, convened the Council's first meeting in July 2001, during which members agreed to share resources and ideas to achieve greater public awareness of the programs and services available in the city of Chicago. The result was Money Smart Week 2002 — six days of focused presentations by community groups, financial institutions, government agencies, educational organizations, and financial experts, all designed to help consumers learn to better manage their personal finances. The effort would showcase different programs, help consumers get information, bring together different organizations — many for the first time — and help these organizations share expertise and leverage limited resources. Today, Money Smart Week is much broader in scope and continues to expand, creating new partnerships, heightened exposure, and substantive events. The Money Smart Week model has grown beyond Chicago with successful campaigns taking place in states such Indiana, Michigan, Texas, Utah, and Wisconsin) and new cities joining every year.

  2. Money Smart Week Programming for Children Title:  Money Money Honey Bunny Topic:  Money Smarts for Children Audience:  Preschool & Parents "Promotional materials were absolutely wonderful.  I used all of the bookmarks in various different ways; one set had a bibliography of adult references while another one was used for coin rubbing.  I glued one each; a pennie, nickel, dime and quarter to the back of a bookmark and introduced the concept of value in story time.  With the aid of parents, the children made coin rubbings and I allowed them to keep those bookmarks.  I copied other bookmarks as designed by you and let the children "shop for books and other materials" in our library.  I provided shopping carts, cash registers, and empty grocery boxes for the activity.  It was wonderful, absolutely wonderful and I received raves on the program." -- Sandra Cooke, Sherrills Ford Branch Library, North Carolina

  9. Money Smart Programming for Seniors Title: Estate Planning Topic: Estate Planning Audience: Seniors Title: Social Security Retirement Info. Session Topic : Social Security Retirement Audience : Seniors “For the first year, I think attendance was pretty good. We did get a lot of great feedback and I think the community would respond well to this being a yearly thing. I believe attendance would increase each year. It was a good opportunity to promote library resources related to each topic. I made some good partnerships with people in the community who came to speak, and will use those in the future not just for Money Smart purposes.” Katie Head, Greenwood County Library, South Carolina
