National Financial Awareness Day (NFAD) is a holiday celebrated on August 14 every year in the United States. It was created in 2017 by the US Financial Literacy and Education Commission (FLEC) as part of their mission to promote financial literacy among Americans.
The day is dedicated to understanding finances and preparing everyone for financial stability. It is a good reminder to take investing and saving seriously to build financial stability and prepare for the future.
There are many ways to celebrate NFAD. You can:
Review your financial situation. Take some time to look at your income, expenses, and savings. Are you on track to reach your financial goals? If not, what changes can you make?
Learn about financial literacy. There are many resources available to help you learn about financial literacy. You can take online courses, read books, or talk to a financial advisor.
Help others become financially literate. Share your knowledge with friends, family, and coworkers. You can also volunteer with a financial literacy organisation.
NFAD is a day to celebrate the importance of financial literacy and to take steps to improve your financial future. By taking some time to learn about financial literacy and to make a plan for your money, you can set yourself up for success.
Here are some additional details about the history of NFAD:
The day was first officially celebrated in 2017.
The FLEC is a federal agency that was created in 2003 by the Financial Literacy and Education Act.
The FLEC’s vision and mission, according to their website: “The Commission’s vision is of sustained financial well-being for all individuals and families in the U.S. In furtherance of this vision, the Commission sets strategic direction for policy, education, practice, research, and coordination so that all Americans make informed financial decisions.”
NFAD is one of several initiatives that the FLEC has undertaken to promote financial literacy.

Make it easy for people to take action. Tell people what you want them to do, and make it easy for them to do it. This could include providing links to resources, offering free consultations, or signing them up for your email list.
