Council for Economic Education Announces $200,000 Challenge Grant

Board Member to match all gifts received through June 30, 2012, up to $200,000

The Council for Economic Education (CEE), the leading organization in the United States that focuses on the economic and financial education of students from kindergarten through high school, announced a Challenge Grant.  Funded by one of CEE’s generous board members, the Challenge Grant will match dollar-for-dollar any gifts received by June 30, 2012, up to $200,000.

“If there’s one lesson we’ve learned from the recent recession and its painful fallout, it’s that an alarming number of Americans lack the most basic dollars-and-cents understanding they need to survive in our global economy,” said President and CEO Nan J. Morrison. “CEE raises funds to support the financial education of future generations, and a challenge grant that will match donations dollar-for-dollar is economics we can all understand.”

CEE is uniquely positioned to help narrow the widening gap between what people know about economics and personal finance, and what they need to know.  Last year CEE trained more than 55,000 teachers, including 5,000 in some of the nation’s lowest-performing high schools; those teachers, in turn, reached 5 million students.  Funds raised through the Challenge Grant will enable CEE to support educators more effectively, including programs for Hispanic Americans, girls and K-5 after school providers.

Join in the effort to make economic and personal finance education a priority in the schools, and help educate young people about the economy they will one day ultimately inherit by donating today to CEE’s Challenge Grant.
