CFO Patronis Highlights the Significance of Florida Thrift Week
 
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – As Florida Thrift Week (January 13 -19, 2019) comes to a close, Chief Financial Officer Jimmy Patronis is highlighting Florida’s commitment to promoting the value of thrift and importance of saving money for future financial success. Florida Thrift Week was made possible by a long-lasting partnership with the James Madison Institute (JMI). 
 
CFO Jimmy Patronis said, “I believe in honoring and continuing the teaching of Benjamin Franklin’s financial wisdom and have partnered with the James Madison Institute to renew the study of thrift for Florida’s youth. You are never too young to learn the importance of being fiscally savvy.”
 
The Department of Financial Services has a selection of financial education programs developed to help Florida’s consumers build financial independence. The Department’s Finance Your Future program is a free interactive, online course designed to educate Florida’s middle and high school students to use core money management concepts. JMI offers a free curriculum guide,“All About the Benjamin's: Understanding the Value of Thrift”, that has been used extensively in Florida high schools to teach students about the importance of thrift and other American values.
