Money Smart Week (MSW) partners are individuals, businesses, financial institutions, schools, libraries, not-for-profits, government agencies, and media outlets that actively participate during Money Smart Week (or anytime in April when involved with a school). Partners provide educational materials, presenters, workshops or seminars, facilities to host events, sponsor events, provide promotional materials, or assist in marketing the initiative.

We would like to thank our past and present partners for their role in Money Smart Week!  Each partner helps to ensure that community members of all ages become better prepared for financial success. If you are interested in supporting the financial literacy efforts in some way, please join us for Money Smart Week.  Contact us (
