springappeal 300x115 Double Your Impact Through CEE’S $175,000 Challenge GrantCEE is excited to announce a $175,000 challenge grant. Thanks to the generosity of our Board Members, Scott Booth and Barry Haimes, all gifts received by June 30 will be matched dollar-for-dollar up to $175,000.

  • $1,250 provides a full scholarship for a teacher to attend CEE’s highly regarded 53rd Annual Financial Literacy and Economic Education Conference, where educators share best practices and receive training on new resources.

Join in the effort to make economic and financial literacy a priority in our schools, and help educate young people about the economy they will ultimately inherit by donating today.

CEE Report – Fall 2013

download cee report fa13 CEE Report – Fall 2013

Three times a year the Council for Economic Education releases the CEE Report, highlighting our new and noteworthy events, programs and partnerships, including pilot programs and joint ventures with key supporters.

“When we do not teach children about personal finance—about managing household budgets, saving for the future, or making informed decisions about larger investments in an education or a home—we are failing them in a shameful and costly way.

The United States cannot continue to miss the mark on the importance of financial education. Other developed countries around the world—including Australia and the United Kingdom, most recently—now require such instruction in their schools. We cannot afford to fall behind, and to fail our young people, in this fundamental respect. Our democratic system rests on the effective operation of a free market economy.”
