Online Program Teaches Financial Literacy
March 31, 2020
Cross River Bank, based in Fort Lee, N.J., has entered into a partnership with Operation Hope to work in tandem to provide virtual financial literacy resources for individuals and community partners. Both sides said they are taking the step for financial stability.
Cross River, which provides banking services for technology companies, and HOPE Inside Disaster, one of the leading financial emergency preparedness and recovery services in the U.S., will provide free programming to provide the community with the foundation they need to become more financially stable and independent as a result of the economic effects of the current COVID-19 pandemic.
“Now, more than ever, Cross River recognizes the importance of community service and providing financial resources to consumers in need, whether that be responsible access to credit, innovative financial solutions or financial literacy programming and support,” said Gilles Gade, founder, president, and CEO of Cross River. “Early in 2019, we created the Cross River Financial Literacy Initiative to give families the tools they need to make the right financial decisions, and now, we are excited to partner with our friends at Operation HOPE on this new initiative to deliver community support during these pressing times.”
