The South Carolina Association of CPAs (SCACPA) has recently announced their sponsorship of the Children's Museum of the Upstate (TCMU)'s Finances for the Family Programming with a donation of $10,000 to TCMU in support the program.
Finances for the Family is a hands-on family-based learning series that looks to educate parents and children alike in financial literacy. Previously, SCACPA supported the TCMU’s Money Works bank exhibit which inspired all of the Museum’s financial literacy programming, including Finances for the Family.
“SCACPA believes in giving back to the community by supporting non-profit organizations, like TCMU, in their outreach efforts,” stated Chris Jenkins, CEO of SCACPA. “We’re so happy that our sponsorship will allow for families to learn and make better choices together about effective financial strategies through the Museum’s Finances for the Family program.”
During the five class sessions of Finances for the Family, adults gain the skills that they need to meet their savings goals through the IDA (Individual Development Account) program, and children receive standards-based lessons about making smart money decisions.
“During the past two years, this program has given participants hope, drive, and understanding of the possibilities they will have if they can save, curb spending, and make better choices financially," said TCMU president and CEO Nancy Halverson, per a statement. “We could not offer this impactful program without the help of SCACPA. Their generosity and funding support has given TCMU the ability to empower parents and children with the outlook of a stable financial future.”
