National Teach Children to Save Day (TCTS) was established to spotlight the importance of teaching our nation’s youth about saving money. This event occurs every April when bankers make presentations to students in grades K-12 about budgeting, saving, recognizing needs and wants and how interest makes money grow.
In April 2018, bankers from over 30 institutions reached out to their communities to make Teach Children to Save Day presentations. Together, these bankers reported nearly 300 presentations and reached almost 9,000 students. Many of Wisconsin’s elected officials have also gotten involved in the event to increase financial literacy across the state. Throughout the month, bankers, legislators, teachers, and others worked to spread the word about saving, budgeting, and financial skills to Wisconsin youth.
This commitment to financial education didn’t go unnoticed – these efforts generated positive publicity in communities statewide, helped bankers form partnerships with local teachers and librarians, and earned Wisconsin national recognition.
