Come learn how to save and spend wisely, and have fun doing it, at Financial Literacy Free Day at The Building for Kids Children’s Museum (BFKCM) on Sunday, April 10 from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m. Sponsored by Thrivent Financial of Outagamie County Chapter, Museum admission will be free, with a suggested donation of a non-perishable food item for the St. Joseph Food Program.
As kids play throughout the BFKCM, they will learn about spending, sharing and saving by using Museum money. They will discover the importance of budgeting by investing their pretend money, purchasing healthy snacks and takeaway items, doing fun activities and learning about sharing with others in our community through local non-profits such as the St. Joseph Food Program, Caneille Regional Development Fund and Habitat for Humanity.
“As Thrivent members, we are committed to helping people in our community be wise with money and live generous lives,” said Oliver Zornow, President of the Thrivent Financial of Outagamie County Chapter. “It’s never too early for kids to establish healthy financial habits.”
“It is important to us to create programming that is engaging and educational,” said Jarrad Bittner, Executive Director at the BFKCM. “With the help of Thrivent Financial, families can enjoy the Museum while learning about money matters and the importance of giving back to the community.”
