What is Financial Literacy?
Financial literacy is the ability to use knowledge and skills to manage one’s financial resources effectively for lifetime financial security.
Financial Literacy Month is a national observance held every April, and was introduced by the National Endowment for Financial Education.
How will donated funds be used?
Kurrencii Kounts plans to establish it's self as a trusted 501(c)(3) charitable foundation. The funds will be used for incorporation, ongoing compliance, securing a headquarters location, student meal prep, books, software, and other equipment.
In addition to providing financial literacy, in the future we look to provide additional services such as adult money management courses, resume writing, interview workshops, job search assistance, college application assistance, and more.
Generally, Kurrencii Kounts uses presenters who are representatives of our partner organizations; however, we’re happy to consider other ideas. If you do a presentation that you think might be suitable for our program and students please contact us and share your ideas.
