As our country faces an unprecedented pandemic and daily economic life is upended, CARE's financial literacy work is more important than ever. Even though school is out of session, CARE is committed to educating young people about the importance of personal finance skills and knowledge.
We remain committed to our mission to educate individuals, with a focus on young adults, on the responsible use of credit and fundamentals of financial literacy, as well as the potential consequences of poor money management and credit abuse. But just as in many aspects of our daily lives, we have adapted the implementation of the mission to adjust to current events. Even with school closures across the country, we continue to support our educators, students, and communities through quality financial education resources.
In lieu of our annual Financial Literacy Celebration, CARE is asking for your support during April's Financial Literacy Month. Whether you have the capacity to give $5 or $500, your gift helps CARE leverage its volunteers, expertise, and resources to reach families and young people in need during this crisis. As individuals, the most impactful way that you can support CARE is to make a monthly contribution and join our CARE Champions program. All it takes is one form and we do the rest-- the lift is easy, but your support is immeasurable!To make a gift In support of CARE, there are three easy ways:
