Freedom Financial Network Launches the Freedom Foundation

Its first $100,000 donation will support Hurricane Harvey relief efforts

 

San Mateo, Calif. – Sept. 7, 2017 – Freedom Financial Network is proud to introduce the Freedom Foundation, created to support non-profit organizations that are committed to helping people recover from setbacks.

The first donation from the Foundation, which was established with an initial $1 million contribution, will go to help those affected by Hurricane Harvey. Communities across Southern Texas and Louisiana have been devastated, and the Foundation is providing $100,000 to help them rebuild and recover. Its donation will be split between two groups; $50,000 to the United Way of Greater Houston and $50,000 to Habitat for Humanity.

"Our business is built on helping those in financial need. That’s why we are committed to helping victims of Hurricane Harvey get back on their feet,” says Brad Stroh, co-CEO.

The Foundation has longer term goals as well, and will continue to identify opportunities to support those in need across the United States. “Helping those affected by Hurricane Harvey is a great first step for the Freedom Foundation,” adds Andrew Housser, co-CEO.

Individual employees have been eager to help those in need, too. “It’s really inspiring to see how many of our employees want to help others and do what they can,” says Stroh. In response, Freedom Financial Network has established a 2:1 matching program, where every employee dollar donated to the Center for Disaster Philanthropy’s Hurricane Harvey Recovery Fund will be matched by the company.

The largest portion of these crowdsourced funds are coming from some of the 1300+ employees at Freedom Debt Relief, which is the largest company in the Freedom Financial Network and the largest debt resolution company in the nation. “We appreciate and value the efforts of our employees, and of these incredible organizations that are committed to help victims of Hurricane Harvey,” says Stroh.
