What Can Your Dollars Do?
Every dollar of support to CEE is important. Here are some examples of what your donation can accomplish:
|$150||Supports one teacher to participate in CEE training in personal finance or economics. That teacher, in turn, will reach 50 – 150 students a year.|
|$500||Outfits a classroom with books and materials. This past year, New York City teachers benefited from classroom resources such as Math in the Real World, Learning, Earning and Investing, Financial Fitness for Life and Playful Economics.|
|$1,250||Provides a full scholarship for a teacher to attend CEE’s highly rated Annual Financial Literacy and Economic Education Conference, where educators share best practices and receive training on new resources. Recent speakers included Alan B. Krueger, Bendheim Professor of Economics and Public Affairs at Princeton University and Chairman of President Barack Obama’s Council of Economic Advisers from 2011 – 2013; Richard Cordroy, Director of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau; and Jeff Lacker, President of the Federal Reserve Bank of Richmond.|
|$2,500||Allows CEE to create one professional development video of master teachers to show how the lessons are being delivered in the classroom. This is the #1 thing that teachers ask us for.|
|$5,000||Supports the delivery of the K-5 Never Too Young After School Program in two locations with our key partner YMCA of New York. This program teaches young students the basics of banking and credit, the cost to run a family, cost-benefit analysis for purchases and the economics and finances of their individual communities. The program ends in a “Market Day” where kids sell the goods that they make to earn econo bucks. Average pre/posttest knowledge improved by 19 points.|
