Smart About Money

Smart About Money is one of the many programs of the National Endowment for Financial Education®. NEFE® is an independent, nonprofit foundation committed to educating Americans on a broad range of financial topics and empowering them to make positive and sound decisions to reach their financial goals. Their website contains a number of simple, free tools and courses to help you manage your finances through life's ups and downs.

Making the most of our money starts with five building blocks for managing and growing your wealth: Earn, Save and Invest, Protect, Spend, and Borrow. This website is organized around these five principles so you can quickly identify resources and tools to help you in each of these areas.
