Clarifi, the largest personal finance nonprofit in Southeastern PA, has received a $30,000 grant from The Philadelphia Foundation (TPF) to support its financial literacy programs. The grant was announced by Pedro A. Ramos, TPF President and CEO.
The grant is supported through the Harry B. Rust Charitable Fund, the Leonora Dinkey Seiple Trust, the Lloyd H. Bacon Trust and an anonymous fund of The Philadelphia Foundation.
Clarifi offers a variety of programs, including financial counseling, education and other innovative services that help people improve their credit, reduce debt and avoid foreclosure. In 2016, they held over 16,000 counseling sessions and over 350 education workshops that served over 17,000 individuals.
“These funds will enable us to help even more local residents achieve financial stability and further strengthen our communities,” says Patty Hasson, President and Executive Director of Clarifi.
In 2016, Clarifi celebrated 50 years of helping Greater Philadelphia residents identify and secure their most important assets. Since 1966, they have helped over 750,000 people improve their financial literacy and capability.
