Money Smart Week (MSW) is a public awareness campaign created in 2002 by the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago. The goal of MSW is to promote financial literacy to all ages, demographics and income levels. MSW partners provide free, educational programming. Partners are not allowed to promote their own goods and services at MSW activities.
