Show Me the Money Day



What is the event?

Show Me the Money Day is a free annual statewide event to promote access to free and low-cost financial resources, products, services, and financial education classes.

This event is geared toward moderate-low income households to empower, and educate them on how to improve their financial situations. This will be accomplished by providing various breakout sessions that will educate the consumer on best practices for managing their finances.

Why Should I Attend?

This virtual experience will give you the information you need to get started, keep building, or lay a new foundation for your financial future. This experience will give you the opportunity to interact with banking institutions and Macomb County based community resources to help you make the necessary moves toward your goals.

Take some time to chat with our presenters, ask about new banking opportunities, and take a look at what vendors have to offer in terms of education and services. This can also be a great opportunity to simply network with like-minded people looking to change their financial futures.

All events are FREE to the public. For more information, locations and a list of all statewide and local sponsors, visit
