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.

Why?

More than half of millennials (about 54 percent) say debt is their “biggest financial concern.”

Only fifty-nine percent of the young adults in Generation Y (ages eighteen to twenty-one) pay their bills on time every month.

Roughly half of Oklahoma 18 year-olds who have a credit account are 90 or more days behind on a payment.
