WHO WE ARE
Credit Abuse Resistance Education (CARE) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization which provides no-cost financial education workshops to high schools, colleges, and youth organizations. These workshops are designed to teach students about asking tough questions about their finances and understand the decision-making process for smart credit decisions.
CARE partners with professionals in various financial service industries to provide real-world context to the fundamentals of personal finance; these professionals include bankruptcy judges, attorneys, accountants and financial planners. Based in 37 states, D.C. and Puerto Rico, CARE works best as a reinforcing guest speaker program for an educator’s existing curriculum or as a standalone presentation aimed at providing an intro to personal finance or paying for college. The materials are offered at no-cost in both English and Spanish and meet the National Standards in K-12 Personal Finance Education as set out by the Jumpstart Coalition.
WHAT WE OFFER
WHAT WE NEED
CARE is a growing 501(c)(3) nonprofit working to expand its programs into all 50 states by 2020. To meet this goal, CARE seeks help in a number of forms: educators to request presentations from their local CARE Chapters, volunteers looking to give presentations, individuals to make financial contributions, and corporations looking to build volunteer programs for their employees.
CARE’s Blog – CARE has launched a blog for financial literacy information, supplemental education materials, news and insights from experts across the financial education universe. You can read our latest post on our website: care4yourfuture.org/blog

Tax season is right around the corner, and tax identity thieves are eager to claim your tax refund as their own. Find out how to stop them during Tax Identity Theft Awareness Week, January 28-February 1, 2019.
Tax identity theft happens when someone uses your Social Security number to get a tax refund or a job. You might find out it has happened when you get a letter from the IRS saying more than one tax return was filed in your name, or IRS records show you have wages from an employer you don’t know.
Learn how to reduce the chance you’ll be a victim and find out what to do if you are during Tax Identity Theft Awareness Week. Join the FTC and its partners for free webinars, Twitter chats, and other events. Over the next few weeks, we’ll be posting information about the events and how you can participate at ftc.gov/taxidtheft.
