Practical Money Skills
Financial Education Center
We belive financial education strengthens the community. And establishing a relationship with our members to foster financial literacy and well-being is a part of Skyward's mission. Practical Money Skills helps with that initiative. Skyward has partnered with Visa to offer an award-winning program that strives to link individuals and educators to the tools and resources needed to help develop healthy money management skills.
Learn basic personal financial habits, or brush-up on fiscal terms and policies. Here you will find subjects spanning the breadth of financial subjects from personal budgeting to economics.
If you are a professional teacher or a parent who wants to create a solid foundation for money management in your family, here you will find resources, lesson plans, and more for teaching kids and adults all about it.
Compete in The Payoff, play some Financial Football, or simply help Peter Pig count his money. Learning about money management can be fun as well as instructional. You can also find additional tips for creating financially themed games for your classroom or family.
Find a variety of calculators to help you determine payoff amounts, how much house you can afford, work and taxes, how much college will cost, or what you need to save to retire. There's even a Tooth Fairy Calculator!
