April is Virginia Financial Literacy Month as proclaimed by Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe. The award-winning Financial Fitness initiative is just one of the ways the VSCPA helps Virginia taxpayers get themselves on solid financial footing. Here are Financial Literacy Month highlights:
ASK A CPA EMAIL PROGRAM: Virginia CPAs will answer questions from the public via emails submitted at FinancialFitness.org. Free advice is available from experts on financial planning, tax planning, military taxes and disaster recovery.
FINANCIAL FITNESS WORKSHOP: The VSCPA will lead a Financial Literacy Workshop at The Collegiate School in Richmond for high school seniors on managing cash flow, budgeting and keeping good credit while in college.
Junior Achievement Partnership : The VSCPA is partnering with Junior Achievement across the state to allow members of the VSCPA to volunteer as individuals, firms or local chapters to provide financial literacy education with students in their local communities. Volunteers will be able to give their time at JA’s Finance Park in Richmond and Fairfax as well as present lessons on savings, budgeting and debt and credit to student groups in Hampton Roads and Southwest Virginia.
Nonprofit Finance Summit: The free all-day Nonprofit Finance Summit for Hampton Roads nonprofits will take place at Tidewater Community College on April 25. It includes a comprehensive seminar on the basics of nonprofit finance as well as in-depth breakout sessions focused on specific topics such as financial reporting, cash management, IRS concerns and more.
