HELP US TEACH FINANCIAL LITERACY TODAY TO GIVE STUDENTS MORE INSPIRING TOMORROW

Credit card debt is at the highest levels in a decade. More than one-quarter of Americans have nothing saved for retirement. Approximately 69 percent of Americans report having less than $1000 in savings.

This financial literacy crisis is making the current economic crisis even worse for families who were unprepared. And the best chance we have to create more inspiring tomorrows for our communities is to prepare today’s young people to make better, smarter financial decisions.

Right now, when you support Junior Achievement of South Florida’s Books, Bucks & Backpacks initiative, you help equip students with financial literacy skills, healthy food and needed school supplies. Support our mission to provide for the needs of our students and prepare them for financial success as adults.

WHY FINANCIAL LITERACY MATTERS

Help families prepare for emergencies
Right now, nearly half of families aren’t financially prepared to deal with a $400 emergency.

Help students prepare for the future
One-quarter of families have nothing saved for retirement. And their children don’t know where to start.

Prepare our community for success
43 percent of Americans are financially illiterate. Reversing this trend is critical for the next generation’s prosperity.

OUR PARTNERS MAKE A DIFFERENCE

This is important for the health of our overall community.
