Join Citizens Bank in Celebrating National Financial Literacy Month

Through our Citizens Helping Citizens Manage Money program, Citizens Bank supports organizations that help our neighbors and communities grow by improving their understanding of how to manage their finances.

This year, we continue our commitment to Citizens Helping Citizens Manage Money with a new social media campaign, online resources, volunteerism and by providing more than $1.4 million in support of financial education programming throughout 2017.

During National Financial Literacy Month in April, we’re helping consumers bank better by improving their financial literacy. Financial literacy is part of what our colleagues do every day – helping customers purchase a home, pay for college, plan for their retirement or grow their business. Financial Literacy Month will kick off with a social media campaign on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram highlighting financial tips and online resources to help consumers develop the necessary skills and habits to be financially healthy. We’ll also be rolling out our “Make It Count Challenge” on Facebook to improve your financial literacy skills through challenges, tips, and discussions.

As a valued community partner, we invite you to join us online starting April 1st to help more people improve their #FinLit by sharing our tips and tools with Facebook and Twitter users in your community.
