ACCI gives special thanks to:
- Pennsylvania Housing Finance Agency (PHFA) for its educational and financial support*
- The Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD)
American Credit Counseling Institute needs funds to help others.
Some of our programs lack proper funding and regrettably the limited resources afforded to us through government grants are not enough to cover our expenses. As a result, ACCI has been forced to limit some of the services offered. Please help us continue helping others to save their homes, to buy a home, to learn about and improve their credit, to learn about renting a property, and and to deal with a balanced budget.
If you were a former client, one of our over 500 clients that we helped last year or one of the tens of thousands that we have helped during the last 23 years, please send us a donation. No donation is small. We encourage everyone of our past customers to donate a dollar or two every year.
If you are a business owner, consider helping us because every client that we help, is going to help you as well. Individuals that are educated about credit and budgeting, are better customers and pay their debts on time. Consider making a generous donation so that we can serve more clients. Your donation will be tax deductible.
Why Consider a Donation?
ACCI’s programs provide financial education, counseling, and coaching to empower adults to make healthy financial choices that will lead them to economic success now and into the future. Our services include the following subjects: Credit, Money Management, Budgeting, Home-buying, and Home owners’ issues, such as foreclosure, among others.
Our programs seek to:
- facilitate financial literacy and empowerment in the communities we serve.
