Educating children, teens, and adults about personal finance not only benefits individuals but our communities as a whole.

Excellence in Financial Education

WBA and the Wisconsin Bankers Foundation commend these banks and bankers for carrying out a long-standing industry commitment to improving financial literacy. It has been a tremendous year for Wisconsin bankers and their efforts to promote financial literacy. Between June 1, 2018 and May 31, 2019, a total of over 460 bankers from all across the state reported nearly 1,850 presentations and reached nearly 33,500 consumers of all ages. The following bankers and institutions were honored at the Wisconsin Bankers Foundation Excellence in Financial Education Awards Breakfast at the LEAD360 Conference on Nov. 21, 2019 in Wisconsin Dells.

In addition, many bankers received certificates of recognition for reporting their participation in at least five (5) financial literacy presentations during the year. 

Congratulations to all!
