Our partners and friends at CFED have a new name! On June 19, the Corporation for Enterprise Development became Prosperity Now. The name, along with a new website and refreshed brand, is broad enough to encompass all the great work they do, but simple enough to be instantly understandable.
Prosperity Now President Andrea Levere sums it up: “With the issues we care about commanding more attention than ever before, we feel now is the time to ensure our name is clear, concise and aspirational. ‘Prosperity’ is synonymous with a healthier and more fulfilling life, which starts with helping people save, build wealth and climb the economic ladder.”
Although their name has changed, their mission has not. Prosperity Now more clearly conveys the organization’s vision and work. Prosperity Now will continue to be an important source for new data and analysis about the struggles facing those in our country with limited income–especially individuals and families of color–as well as policies and programs that help people achieve financial stability and prosper.
We encourage you to explore their updated website for key research and solutions on poverty, wealth inequality and the racial wealth divide. Congratulations to our friends at Prosperity Now!
