The month of April is designated California Financial Literacy Month (CAFLM) to highlight the importance of financial literacy and economic empowerment and encourage all Californians to increase their understanding of saving, investing and credit choices.

Financial literacy empowers Californians to make wise financial decisions. Consumers face financial choices every day that affect their financial future. Consumers conduct some type of financial transaction requiring a well-informed and educated decision, from reconciling credit card statements to securing affordable financing for a new or used car to saving for college, preparing for retirement; starting a family business or realizing the American dream of homeownership.

As a statewide public awareness and education effort, CAFLM is the perfect opportunity for businesses, including financial institutions and community organizations to highlight their current financial literacy efforts or become involved in this important effort to make financial literacy education a priority.

Businesses and organizations can partner together or individually to offer free workshops, classes and other types of community events. We can also contribute resources to facilitate and promote events to help consumers learn to manage their personal finances.

CAFLM partners with other state and federal agencies, community-based organizations, financial institutions, educators and others. See a list of partners on the CAFLM Webpage.

For additional information or to partner with CAFLM, please contact Alana Golden, Public Information Officer III, California Department of Business Oversight (DBO) by email at Alana.Golden@dbo.ca.gov or call (916) 323-7012.
