What if we were able reach and teach every student in the State of Oklahoma about personal finance and economics? Imagine how robust our state’s economy would be, the businesses created and the citizenry capable of making better decisions as savers, investors, borrowers, voters, and participants in our economy.

At OCEE, community leaders like you join forces to make personal finance and economic education a priority in our schools. Our donors are inspiring Oklahoma students to understand our global economy enabling them to be successful contributors to our state.
