Published: Monday, Feb. 3, 2014 10:47 p.m. CST

The DeKalb County CA$H Coalition is seeking community partners in preparation for Money Smart Week 2014, scheduled from April 5 through 12.

Money Smart Week is a public awareness campaign to promote financial literacy across all age groups. Launched in 2002 by the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago, the program is now active in more than 45 states through national partnerships with the American Library Association and the Financial Planning Association.

Organizations interested in partnering with the DCCC have multiple options for sponsorship. Partners can choose to be a programming sponsor by presenting a workshop or providing space for a workshop to be hosted.

A partner also can choose to be a financial sponsor by purchasing ad space in a newspaper insert.

The leadership team for programming efforts include staff from United Way, Northern Illinois University and Econ Illinois.

To become a partner for Money Smart Week, contact Randi Napientek at 815-753-0713 or Randi@niu.edu or contact Dawn Littlefield at 815-756-7522 or dawn@kishwaukeeunitedway.com.
