Money Smart Month of Greater Kansas City is a public awareness campaign designed to help consumers better manage their personal finances. This is achieved through the collaboration and coordinated effort of hundreds of organizations across the Kansas City metropolitan area including businesses, financial institutions, schools, libraries, not-for-profits, government agencies and the media.
These groups come together in April of each year to stress the importance of financial literacy, inform consumers about where they can get help, and provide free educational seminars, workshops and activities throughout the month of April. Even though our focus is in the month of April, there are also activities held throughout the year. Programming is offered to all ages and income levels and covers all areas of personal finance from establishing a budget to first-time home buying to estate planning.
