Welcome to the Governor's Council on Financial Literacy


Governor's Council on Financial Literacy

2014 Governor's Financial Literacy Award

nomination form for the 2014 Governor’s Financial Literacy Award



The Council's mission is to measurably improve the financial literacy of Wisconsin's citizens through the actions listed on Executive Order #24 and shall guide and serve as a continuous sounding board for the Office of the Governor and the Department of Financial Institutions' Office of Financial Literacy.

Many Wisconsin families— but particularly low- and moderate-income ones—struggle to deal effectively with the complex range of choices they encounter in the financial services markets. Families that lack financial assets have little ability to build wealth and they contribute to rising consumer debt. Surveys also show that youth lack basic financial skills and knowledge.

The Council is part of a pro-active approach to improving financial literacy in Wisconsin and making the state the recognized national leader when it comes to promoting financial literacy.

The Council welcomes and encourages your participation. Please pass along your ideas and suggestions by sending e-mail to: David Mancl.

Thank you in advance for your participation.
