CRI begins partnership with new financial guidance service HelloWallet
For release: March 8, 2010
Community Renewal has entered into a partnership with HelloWallet, which offers the most powerful online, independent financial guidance and management service in the United States. Members are provided with customized financial plans, personal money-management and monitoring, and an individualized bank shopper service that looks at over 50,000 different financial products to find better prices and rates for its members.
As part of its support of CRI, HelloWallet is featuring Community Renewal on its web site and is offering 1 free subscription for every 5 subscribers from the state of Louisiana.
“I realized I wanted to do more than talk about the problems in our country. I wanted to be part of the solution,” said Matt Fellowes, a Brookings Institution scholar who is HelloWallet founder and CEO, during a recent visit to Community Renewal. Fellowes and CRI Coordinator Mack McCarter met at the 2009 Clinton Global Initiative in New York City.
HelloWallet also proactively identifies financial health threats and savings opportunities for its members, helping them avoid costly financial missteps and make sustainable improvements in their financial health.
HelloWallet is available directly to consumers as well as through its enterprise partners, which collectively represent over 1.5 million people. Its commitment to democratize access to trustworthy, sophisticated financial guidance has been widely honored, including at the Clinton Global Initiative's 2009 Annual Meeting.
