CURO Group Holdings Corp, a market leader in providing credit to non-prime consumers, announced that it has made two $10,000 donations to Black mental health organizations in the U.S. and Canada in recognition of Black History Month.
“We hope that the contribution of $10,000 to each organization helps to advance their current activities, particularly as mental health needs have increased during this very difficult time.”
The donations, driven by CURO’s Diversity and Inclusion Council, are part of the Council’s goal of empowering individuals from all backgrounds. Council Members reviewed a number of organizations to honor Black History Month as well as take into consideration the pandemic and other recent social events to create a meaningful impact for the Black community.
In the U.S., the Company has donated $10,000 to the Black Mental Health Alliance, a non-profit that develops, promotes and sponsors trusted and culturally-relevant educational forums, trainings and referral services that support the health and well-being of Black people and vulnerable communities.
In Canada, CURO has donated $10,000 to Black Mental Health Canada, a non-profit that facilitates access to affordable, culturally safe and affirming mental health services to the Black community through education, advocacy, and provision of resources.
“These organizations’ visions align with our vision—the creation of an equitable, respectful, and compassionate society—and we must all do our part,” said Jillian Slagter, Chief Human Resources Officer. “We hope that the contribution of $10,000 to each organization helps to advance their current activities, particularly as mental health needs have increased during this very difficult time.”
