Supporting Improving Financial Awareness & Financial Literacy

Help make a BIG difference while you increase your business.

Please join PPI as we partner with The Financial Awareness Foundation and other leading financial service and nonprofit associations, their professionals and companies, nonprofits, educational institutions, larger employers, membership-based organizations, technology companies, government agencies, and the news media in celebrating, supporting and participating the Improving Financial Awareness & Financial Literacy Movement with its concentrated personal finance content media blitz built around the strategic venues of:

  • 9th anniversary of National Estate Planning Awareness Month / Week (NEPAW-3rd week in October)
  • 14th anniversary of National Financial Literacy Month (NFLM-April) next April

The goals are to encourage you to actively support and join in the movement to alert, educate, motivate, and assist the general public to cost effectively establish and keep their estate and financial plans and gifting plans current. This is such a great opportunity to “do good” for the general public, generate new revenue opportunities for you, and help produce needed gifts and bequests for nonprofits.

You can see what our colleagues and associates did during the spring campaign by viewing the Improving Financial Awareness & Financial Literacy Report & Magazine.
