Washington, DC. March 21, 2023 – The Jump$tart Coalition for Personal Financial Literacy will once again mark Financial Literacy Month by honoring outstanding individual and organizational achievements in the financial literacy effort at its Annual Awards Luncheon on April 25, 2023 at the Park Hyatt Washington, DC.
The Singleton Foundation for Financial Literacy and Entrepreneurship uses the power of entertainment to enlighten and educate and its goal is to help give everyone the financial skills they need to better manage their lives and their businesses.
As a leader in creating high quality, impactful, and innovative financial education content that continues to reach millions of viewers throughout the world, the Singleton Foundation offers and array of unique initiatives, powerful tools, and partnerships, such as Venture Valley, a fast-paced business simulation video game where players take on the role of an entrepreneur, pitting their learned business savvy against others.
The foundation’s Million Stories Series is a “first-of-it-kind” mobile entertainment channel designed to help people care about their finances. It uses the power of storytelling to “capture attention and inspire action” to create real changes within individuals and their relationship to money. The content is created with top directors, writers, celebrities, and influencers to change the opinion that money is boring, hopeless, or complicated.
Shelley Miles, CEO, will accept the Innovation Award on behalf of the Singleton Foundation for Financial Literacy and Entrepreneurship. The award was first introduced in 2015 as a special recognition for our longtime partner, Experian, for the innovative ways in which it was using social media to educate consumers. Today, it is presented to organizations that are not only doing exceptional work in the financial literacy field, but are doing it in new, different, and inspiring ways.
