GBA Financial Literacy Resources for Consumers and Bankers
GBA's Financial Literacy Program sponsored by the GBA Marketing Committee
is an effort by bankers to encourage financial education in the most practical sense. The objective is to educate Georgians (children, teenagers and adults) on banking services and personal finance. GBA partners with the American Bankers Association Community Engagement Foundation
to provide financial education materials for bankers and consumers, and to promote banker participation in community financial literacy programs.
The Program is an expression of the philosophy that no one benefits from financial ignorance on the part of the individual or the public, least of all the commercial bank. It is just good business - in the long run - for consumers to understand how to balance a checkbook, use credit wisely and budget their money. It's also important for consumers and future consumers to understand banks as a business and the services they offer.
