CredAbility Receives Grant From The Home Depot Foundation

ATLANTA, Dec 10, 2012 (GlobeNewswire via COMTEX) -- Through its seventh annual Building Community Network program, The Home Depot(R) Foundation has awarded $20,000 to CredAbility. The donation will be used to provide financial advisory services to low- and moderate-income individuals.

"We are thrilled to receive this support of both collaboration and funding from The Home Depot Foundation," said Phil Baldwin, chief executive officer of CredAbility. "This positive recognition and support will assist us as we expand and enhance our core initiatives and serve the Atlanta community." Through its Building Community Network program, sponsored in partnership with the Georgia Center for Nonprofits, The Home Depot Foundation connects with some of Atlanta's most effective nonprofit organizations, which are focused on building communities through innovative programs and collaborative partnerships that fall outside of the Foundation's usual areas of giving. This year, 20 nonprofits participated in roundtable discussions and workshops focused on the theme of 'Leadership for Sustainability and Lasting Impact' that addressed the needs nonprofit organizations to explore the role of leadership in organizational long-term health and the importance of growing leaders at every level of an organization. Each organization received a $20,000 grant at the end of the day to support their work on a broad range of issues facing the Atlanta community.

"We feel it is especially important to support local nonprofits that share our goal of creating and maintaining a healthier and more stable Atlanta," said Kelly Caffarelli, president of The Home Depot Foundation. "By creating a partnership with CredAbility, we believe we have the opportunity to make a significant impact on our hometown."
