Celebrating financial education all year long

Robert Sims, May 14, 2019

From kids saving pennies in piggy banks to adults looking to manage budgets better, everyone has a financial dream. At Hancock Whitney, we know that good financial knowledge and improving money smarts at any age can make a difference in achieving those dreams. We believe in lifelong learning, and our commitment to financial education is just another way to connect with and support our communities.  

Throughout April Hancock Whitney celebrated Hancock Whitney Financial Education Month, which coincides with National Financial Education Month. Through a combination of in-person and online Hancock Whitney Financial Cents curriculums, associates from Houston to Tampa shared money management know-how with audiences of all ages and at all stages of their financial journeys.

In April alone, our team facilitated lessons for more than 2,500 people through 30 different local organizations, including schools, civic groups, nonprofits, recovery and rehabilitation agencies, and organizations fostering community development in low-to-moderate-income neighborhoods.
