Organizations promote mutual efforts in furthering financial literacy education.

San Diego, CA -  Essential Knowledge, LLC an independent financial education company headquartered in the Kansas City area has become a Corporate Sponsor of the Institute of Consumer Financial Education (ICFE), the award winning non-profit public education organization based in San Diego, CA.

As an independent provider of financial education, Essential Knowledge develops education that has no ties with - and no bias toward - any financial services company or category, so the material is impartial and practical. The ICFE's independent approach to basic financial education is very much in line with Essential Knowledge's model of offering independent, product-free education about money and how people can successfully manage it.

"We're excited to become a corporate sponsor of the ICFE, an organization that has played an important role in financial literacy education for the past 25 years," said Graham Moyer, vice president of Essential Knowledge. "We envision many opportunities for these two organizations to work together with a common goal of helping people improve their financial lives."

Essential Knowledge specializes in developing innovative financial literacy programs for working adults, teenagers and young adults, as well as military personnel and their families. These programs include online college credit classes, certification programs, books, tools and group workshops.

The sponsorship will specifically involve Essential Knowledge and the ICFE joining forces to promote FI 201M - Personal Financial Management, a new online course created specifically for members of the military community by Essential Knowledge and offered for 3 undergraduate college credit hours by Park University. Park is regionally accredited and the nation's second largest online degree-granting program according to US News and World Report.
