Florida, November 2020 – The Florida Council on Economic Education (FCEE) has teamed up with New England Patriots Linebacker, Brandon Copeland and Bank of America, for a free event, Tackling Financial Literacy: A Virtual Discussion About the Importance of Managing Money.

“Many know Brandon for his time spent on the field, but he is equally regarded for his commitment to financial literacy,” said Suzanne Costanza, Executive Director of the FCEE. “Along with football, Brandon devotes time to his alma mater, UPenn, to teach a course, Life 101, where he coaches students to make intelligent decisions in all areas of personal finance. Students see the genuine passion he brings to the importance of managing money and the FCEE is pleased to spread his message and enthusiasm to students, educators and the public.”

“I look forward to speaking with teachers and students in December about the importance of financial literacy through my partnership with the Florida Council on Economic Education” said Brandon Copeland.

Presenting Sponsor, Bank of America, has committed to the continued support of the mission of the FCEE with a $15K contribution. “Now more than ever, it is crucial that we help people build better money habits and prepare for the future. Teaming up with the FCEE and Brandon Copeland for the Tacking Financial Literacy event supports Bank of America’s efforts to make financial lives better. It’s never too early to begin building a strong financial foundation,” said Bill Goede, Bank of America’s Tampa Bay President

In addition to Bank of America, key sponsors include Sykes Enterprises, Sight & Sound Productions, The National Academy Foundation and Cusmyers LLC.
