Founded in 1951, the National Foundation for Credit Counseling® (NFCC®) is the nation’s first and largest nonprofit dedicated to improving people’s financial well-being. With 600 member offices serving 50 states and Puerto Rico, our NFCC® Certified Consumer Credit Counselors are financial advocates, empowering millions of consumers to take charge of their finances through one-on-one financial reviews that address credit card debt, student loans, housing decisions and overall money management. Make one of the best financial decisions of your life. For expert guidance and advice, call (800) 388-2227 or visit today.


NFCC member agencies provide financial reviews and education to millions of consumers each year in person, over the phone or online. Every NFCC member agency client receives comprehensive money management services based on their individual needs. NFCC member agencies provide various free and affordable services including:

Additionally, one-third of our members are multi-service agencies specializing in community-based social service programs such as youth mentoring, foster care and substance abuse programs.


The NFCC is seeking sponsors for NFCC Connect, our annual member conference. This highly anticipated event attracts high profile industry experts and addresses timely topics affecting the credit counseling and financial education sector. Showcase your innovative products and services, and support the NFCC mission, its members and the millions of consumers who reach out to NFCC member agencies for help each year, by exhibiting or sponsoring NFCC Connect! The conference will take place Sept. 25-28 in Washington, D.C. Contact Cindy deSales at


The NFCC is releasing two significant reports during Financial Capability Month. The first was an independent, scientifically based evaluation conducted by researchers at The Ohio State University. It revealed the impact of nonprofit credit counseling and financial education as provided through the NFCC’s Sharpen Your Financial Focus® program. You can read more about the findings here:

The second report, to be released later this month, announces the results of the Consumer Financial Literacy Survey. This annual national poll uncovers important trends in financial knowledge, personal savings, debt management, housing, student loan debt and much more. Follow our Twitter and Facebook pages for more information as it becomes available. The full report will be posted on our Press page at
