Promoting financial literacy.

The California Society of Certified Public Accountants, Redwood City, is doing everything it can to help state residents become more savvy money managers. Hosted by state legislators, CalCPA's "Dollars and Sense" town hall-style forums seek to improve constituents' financial know-how. A panel of CPAs discusses money-management practices in areas such as investing, saving, budgeting, and saving on taxes.

In addition to this financial literacy initiative, CalCPA recently formed a 501(c)(3) foundation, the CalCPA Institute, to promote financial literacy education. "CalCPA Institute will allow CalCPA to seek and receive financial support for our financial literacy initiative--and future initiatives," says CEO Susan Waters, CAE.
