Events will be held throughout April to help individuals and families learn about money management, goal-setting, building credit and reducing debt

United Way of Greater St. Louis and the St. Louis Regional Financial Empowerment Coalition (US) are partnering for St. Louis Metro Money Smart Month, offering more than 80 free events and classes on financial education and money management throughout April.

Money Smart Month is a community education program sponsored by the St. Louis Regional Financial Empowerment Coalition in partnership with United Way of Greater St. Louis, area libraries, community organizations and financial institutions. Classes and events will be held throughout April to help individuals and families learn about money management, goal-setting, saving for retirement or college, building credit, reducing debt, estate planning and more.

This year, for the safety of participants and volunteers, all events will be virtual, except for two free, secure document shredding events, which will be held in line with COVID-19 guidelines.

Money Smart Month provides an excellent opportunity for local people to gain more knowledge on personal finance and learn about tools to help improve their lives and meet their financial goals, said Debbie Irwin, community economic development director at United Way of Greater St. Louis. United Way is pleased to continue collaborating with our partners to help thousands of people in our region, especially as so many of our neighbours are facing challenges due to COVID-19 and may be looking for opportunities to save and better manage their finances.

The events are made possible through the collaborative efforts of nonprofits, financial institutions, libraries and faith organizations, said Georgie Donahue, coalition co-chair and program administration director at Community Action Agency of St. Louis County. St. Louis is fortunate to have so many organizations coming together for the good of the community.
