Raise Your Credit I.Q. for a Cause – In this virtual session facilitated by our partners from the National Foundation for Credit Counseling, Synchrony colleagues will participate in financial education games to make them more credit savvy – and cast their votes for financial literacy non-profits to receive a grant from Synchrony.

December 9th | 1:00 – 2:00 PM EST



Immersing ourselves in the situations of those tackling credit card debt and challenging financial situations.

About the cause: Since 1951, the National Foundation for Credit Counseling® (NFCC®) has helped millions of people lead a more financially fit life. As the largest and longest-serving nonprofit financial counseling organization in the U.S., their mission is to help all Americans gain control over their finances.

About the event: Learn about the challenges experienced by individuals who are struggling with credit and personal finances. You will learn about the work of the NFCC and then be faced with decisions NFCC beneficiaries have to make regularly. We will then do some work on our own personal finances through the cookie board challenge!

Join us for this virtual event as we learn about the cause, make an impact, and connect over a fun activity at home!



The trusted non-profit organization to help manage your finances

The NFCC programs and services are accessed through a national network of nonprofit member agencies. Each agency is staffed by NFCC Certified Financial Counselors. These individuals are financial advocates who can help you get started with a financial review and establish a budget and a personalized financial action plan.

Be a Waste Warrior

We build our volunteer events to be as environmentally friendly as possible. Whether it is offsetting the carbon emissions of the shipping process, using recycled cardboard for the boxes, or relying on algae-based dyes, we’ve made conscious steps to ensure we’re doing right for our world.

However, it’s impossible for us to completely eliminate waste products from the experience. To ensure we limit the impact of these materials, we ask that all participants properly recycle and dispose of the materials they receive.

Recycling is hard so we made this resource list to make it easier!
