Treasurer Loftis with Students from Doby Mills

Welcome to the State Treasurer's Office Kids Page!
While the State Treasurer's Office deals with many complex investment and financial arrangements worth billions of dollars, it all starts with a basic understanding of finance. "Understanding how money works is the foundation for success," Treasurer Loftis said. The Treasurer's Kids Page is designed to allow children a chance to learn about finances through various resources.
Lucky Ducky and the Smart Plan:
Lucky Ducky and the Smart Plan is a coloring book created by the State Treasurer's Office in conjunction with noted S.C. cartoonist Robert Ariail for Future Scholar, South Carolina's 529 College Savings Plan. The book shares the story of how Papa Pig plans to save for Lucky Ducky's college education, promoting a fun and easy way for kids to start thinking about the importance of a future college education.

Treasurer's Financial Literacy Tour Travels the State

State Treasurer Curtis Loftis has spent time since taking office in 2011 visiting schools statewide to promote financial literacy and share his experiences as the state’s chief banker.

“Financial literacy helps builds responsibility for students,” Treasurer Loftis said. "Learning financial skills not only benefits students as individuals but also contributes to the future economic stability of our state as a whole.”

Treasurer Loftis has spoken to thousands of South Carolina students and recognized several Palmetto State educators for their efforts in financial literacy. 

The Future Scholar Financial Literacy Program, offered to elementary and middle schools across the state at no cost to taxpayers, is a web-based financial management course that focuses on skill building, budgeting and decision making. 

As of late spring 2018, there were approximately 27,000 South Carolina students involved in the Future Scholar Financial Literacy Program, spread among nearly 250 schools.
