You may have noticed a conspicuous thermometer gracing the pages of pfblogs.org and a number of personal finance blogs. This thermometer is measuring donations within a campaign to fund personal finance lessons in public schools.
HC at One Big Mortarboard has organized a campaign to raise a total of $1,500 out of about $1,900 remaining to fully cover four projects focusing on bringing money management skills to the schools. Teachers have personally submitted these projects to DonorsChoose to find funding. Here are the details on the four programs searching for funding, which have been selected by personal finance bloggers. Four more programs are waiting to take the place of this first set once it is fully funded.
