Mission Statement


Common Cents seeks to mend the financial literacy gap seen across the U.S.

According to the Federal Reserve, in a basic financial literacy test comprising of three questions, only about a third of adults could answer all three questions. College students scored similar scores.

This doesn't have to be this way.
