What is Money Smart Colorado?
Money Smart Colorado is a public awareness campaign designed to help consumers better manage their personal finances. This is achieved through the collaboration and coordinated effort of organizations across the state including businesses, financial institutions, schools, libraries, not-for-profits, government agencies and the media. These partners come together once a year to stress the importance of financial literacy, inform consumers where they can get help, and provide free educational seminars and activities throughout the week. Programming is offered to all demographics, income levels and covers all facets of personal finance from establishing a budget to first time home buying to estate planning.

How Did It All Get Started?
The idea of this week originated in Chicago by the Federal Reserve Bank. This Money Smart Colorado effort is coordinated by Colorado Jump$tart, a diverse group of organizations working together to promote personal financial literacy. The goal of Money Smart Colorado is to help all Coloradans – no matter the age – to become better educated on how to successfully manage their personal finances.
