Changing a Nation of Spenders to a Nation of Savers through Financial Education
ING Direct Funds Personal Finance Afterschool Program for Elementary Students through the Council for Economic Education

The Council for Economic Education is proud to announce a new partnership with ING DIRECT to pilot a personal finance after-school program for elementary school students focusing on effective decision-making and the development of crucial life skills.
The financial literacy program will teach young students the basics of banking and credit, learning the cost to run a family, exploring cost-benefit analysis for purchases and the economics and finances of their individual communities.

Arkadi Kuhlmann, President and CEO of ING DIRECT USA, the country’s largest savings bank, and CEE board member supports this important initiative conducted by the CEE.

“Through the ING DIRECT Kids Foundation programs we help children throughout the country understand the basics of saving, spending and investing,” said Kuhlmann. “By means of this outstanding partnership with the CEE, our goal is to help children and adults understand that saving is a good thing for us as individuals and as a nation. Most of all, we will provide examples of how saving can better the quality of life.”
