Support Us

 

Our vision is unwavering: to provide every Mississippi student with a sound understanding of basic economic and personal finance principles. That means each young Mississippian grasps how economics relates to his or her life as a worker, citizen and consumer. That makes economic and personal finance education all of our business. We hope you will make it yours with an investment in economic and personal finance education.

What Can Your Dollars Do?

 

Every dollar of support to MCEE is important.  Here are some examples of what your donation can accomplish:

$150 Supports one teacher to participate in MCEE training in personal finance or economics. That teacher, in turn, will reach 50 – 150 students a year.
$250 Sponsor Stock Market Game teams for one participating elementary, middle or high school.
$500 Outfits a classroom with resources such as Financial Fitness for Life, a comprehensive personal finance curriculum for K-12 students covering important aspects of personal finance, such as earning income, spending, saving, borrowing, investing, and managing money.
$1,250 Provides a full scholarship for a teacher to attend the Council for Economic Education’s Annual Conference.
$5,000 Supports a teacher training workshop in general financial literacy, or on a featured topic, such as Teaching Financial Crises. MCEE workshops routinely receive top ratings – last year over 95% of participants in MS-based workshops rated them very good to excellent on quality of content and usefulness.
$10,000 Supports one state level competition for Mississippi students such as the Stock Market Game, Economics Challenge, Financial Literacy Challenge or the International Economic Summit.
