The St. Kate's Financial Literacy Program has received funding from GE Money and the ING Foundation to support a series of free financial literacy workshops for students seeking to improve their money management skills.
The series, entitled Money Doesn't Grow on Trees, began in 2008 with a kick-off event featuring national speaker Nathan Dungen, who spoke on money and values, the impact of our hyper-consumption culture, and how to develop balance between spending with saving and sharing. The Financial Literacy Program will continue during the 2008-9 academic year.
Numerous staff and faculty are leading this project including Joan Demeules, Lizette Bartholdi, Sabrina Anderson, Sylvia Alexander, Chuayi Yang, Donna Hauer, Trudy Landgren, Jennie Robinson-Kloos and Ellen Richter-Norgel.
