ICFE eNEWS #11-17 - April 6th 2011

April is National Financial Literacy Month!

The ICFE's friends and educational partners at Money Management International have created a wonderful online package for individuals and families to change their financial situation by learning about important financial matters like creating and managing a budget, paying down debt while saving for emergencies, and creating achievable financial goals.

Between rapidly increasing prices in gas and food along with sluggish economic growth, consumers are feeling more pinched each week. In fact, according to a recent survey by Career Builder, 77 percent of American consumers are living paycheck to paycheck.

The ICFE and the folks at Money Management International invite you to support this important cause by downloading the Financial Literacy Month Toolkit and spreading the word about financial literacy.
