In order to more closely align its identity with its customer-centric online presence, Springboard Nonprofit Consumer Credit Management Inc., a nonprofit offering financial education for borrowers, has changed its name to credit.org.
In addition to the name change, which became effective Sept. 2, Springboard has obtained the Web domain credit.org, through which it will deliver financial education, tools and resources.
“Our focus and dedication to providing quality, relevant and trustworthy financial education is unwavering,” said Todd Emerson, president and CEO of the organization, in a release. “To both new consumers and those that have entrusted us over the years, the only change is in our name to credit.org.”
In addition to a rebranding, the new credit.org site sports “a responsive design and easier navigation, whether accessing through a desktop, tablet or smartphone, will help us do that more effectively,” Emerson said.
As per the press release, credit.org will continue to support and offer the following services and sites:
- Homeownership.org, offering U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development-approved housing counseling to help consumers with foreclosure prevention, first-time home buyer education, reverse mortgage counseling and more;
- BKHelp.org, for consumers seeking bankruptcy protection, including pre-filing counseling and pre-discharge education;
- StudentDebt.org, a trusted resource for student loan guidance, offering assistance to a generation of student loan borrowers;
- SpringboardSolutions.org, offering industry program administration services that emphasize people, processes and systems, and a government services provider; and
