Money Smart Week Illinois

WNIJ & WNIU invite you to learn how to be in control of your financial health by taking part in “Money Smart Week.” This annual public awareness campaign presents free lectures and workshops taking place today through Saturday throughout Illinois with topics that cover all stages of life and financial complexity.

You can learn about basic budgeting, how to eat healthy foods on a limited budget, and how to avoid ID theft. Maybe you would rather learn about how to get back on track after a financial disaster, the best way to secure a mortgage, or how to effectively plan for retirement. They’ve got that too.

There are also fun activities for families designed to teach kids what money is, why it is important and how to manage it effectively. Find a complete list of “Money Smart Week” programs, including information on what you can learn today, on our Events page.
