Equifax has pledged more than $500,000 in support to help communities improve access to credit and build financial responsibility through a five-year partnership with Operation HOPE, a financial dignity nonprofit committed to providing financial empowerment to under-served communities.
As part of the partnership, Equifax Chairman and CEO Richard F. Smith will join the Operation HOPE National Board of Directors to promote the aligned goals of the two organizations. Equifax Personal Solutions President Trey Loughran will join Operation HOPE’s Southeastern Board.
“Operation HOPE’s mission directly reflects Equifax’s own values and initiatives of helping responsible individuals achieve financial empowerment,” Smith said.
“We are pleased to partner with them to enable greater financial literacy among under-served consumers and communities across the country. By helping people gain access to credit, you open doors—whether it’s to a car loan, a better mortgage, or the opportunity to go to college. We look forward to joining with them to further assist this worthy initiative.”
