Teaching You to Manage Your Money
Our mission is to teach money management skills to Dane County individuals and families. We mobilize volunteers and staff to provide unbiased, accessible financial education through workshops, one-on-one coaching and other asset building services. As a program of Dane County UW-Extension, we provide information, tools and other resources that give the necessary skills to increase credit worthiness, reduce barriers to housing, eat healthy on a budget, and improve overall financial capability.
The latest data breach in the news comes from Equifax, one of the three major credit bureaus in the U.S. It is now more important than ever to review your credit report every 4 months. The University of Wisconsin-Extension “Check Your Free Credit Report: 2/2, 6/6, 10/10” campaign makes the process of ordering and reviewing a free credit report as easy as possible. Anyone can sign up to receive an email reminder from UW-Extension three times a year—on 2/2, 6/6, and 10/10—on the campaign’s website: fyi.uwex.edu/creditreport.
