State Treasurer launches online education modules

OLYMPIA, WA – State Treasurer Duane Davidson has recently launched a series of online educational modules to provide quick and easy access to financial education topics for adults and teens throughout Washington.

Treasurer Davidson collaborated with Everfi, a Washington D.C. based educational tech firm, to implement the modules for Washingtonians which include access to specific savings opportunities for state residents.

Treasurer Davidson recognizes that the New Year is often seen as a fresh start and wants to encourage Washingtonians to make resolutions to improve their financial situations.  He stated, “I believe financial education is the foundation of financial success and want to make sure that all Washingtonians have a resource to understand basic financial concepts in a concise and easy way and these modules provide that”.

Since taking office in January 2017, Treasurer Davidson has been a proponent of expanding financial education in the community.  By partnering with multiple state agencies and non-profit organizations who are also actively promoting financial literacy throughout the state, Treasurer Davidson is confident that Washington will emerge as a leader among states in this arena.

The modules can be accessed in both English and Spanish, and found at https://tre.wa.gov/news/financial-education/.
