This partnership will offer one million children the benefit of TrustEgg’s expertise and resources to NBCI’s nationwide membership base of over 15 million congregants across the country.
“This collaboration will leverage TrustEgg’s relatable financial resources to help bridge the socioeconomic divide affecting African American families.” said Reverend Anthony Evans, NBCI President.
During the June 19th launch, NBCI leadership will be joined by community leaders and elected officials in an event that promises to reach African American families with the message that early and often savings is within their reach through partners like TrustEgg.
