September 2, 2010 - Online Tool Helps Families, Organizations Locate Financial Resources  RSS feed

Media Contact

To help community organizations, businesses, educators and consumers find money management resources, Oklahoma Money Matters (OKMM), the financial education program of the Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education and the Oklahoma Guaranteed Student Loan Program, recently launched an online resource clearinghouse of hundreds of publications, websites, calculators and other tools.

Users can browse all materials in the clearinghouse or use the basic and advanced search features to drill down and locate materials by keyword, subject, audience served, resource language or resource type.

“Financial education is a vital component in everyday life for all Oklahomans, from teaching students about money to saving for college to planning for retirement,” said Chancellor Glen D. Johnson “This resource clearinghouse will assist community groups in teaching Oklahomans about budgeting, educators looking for publications about credit, and businesses seeking materials to educate employees about identity theft.”

Materials cover a wide range of topics, including credit, savings, banking, teaching children about money, financial planning, managing student loans and paying for college. Most resources are in English, but some are available in multiple languages, including Spanish.

Visit the clearinghouse at www.OklahomaMoneyMatters.org or call (800) 970-OKMM for more information about OKMM programs and services.

Oklahoma Money Matters is the financial literacy initiative of the Oklahoma Guaranteed Student Loan Program and the Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education.
