CFED Has Become Prosperity Now!
For 38 years, CFED has been a leader in the effort to create economic opportunity for all. Over the course of nearly four decades, our work has transformed from a focus on low-income entrepreneurs into a broader effort to fundamentally change the economy to work better for those with limited income—especially communities of color—in all facets of their lives.
Today marks another important evolution in our history. I’m proud to announce that as of this morning, CFED has become Prosperity Now.
Why did we decide to change our name? First and foremost, because everyone in this country deserves a clear path to financial security, wealth and prosperity, and we believe that a clearer brand identity will better position us to prepare those pathways. We also know that to be effective in addressing rocketing economic insecurity and an ever-growing racial wealth divide, we must cultivate a brand that is inclusive, generous and accessible. To read more about the Prosperity Now name and the bold vision it embodies, read my latest blog post on our brand-new website.
As thrilled as we are about the exciting new changes that Prosperity Now will bring, I want to underscore that much will remain unchanged. Our vision of putting prosperity within reach for everyone in this country—particularly those who have been traditionally excluded from opportunity—remains the same. In fact, our transformation to Prosperity Now represents our strengthened commitment—to you, and to the communities you serve.
All week, and in the months to come, we will share more about the exciting changes on the horizon and what they mean for you. In the meantime, you can explore all we have in store by browsing our new website (prosperitynow.org) and following us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
