Our core purpose is to improve the financial literacy and solvency of individual consumers. The following mission statement is adapted from the National Foundation for Credit Counseling’s (NFCC) comprehensive mission statement for all Consumer Credit Counseling Service (CCCS) agencies.

The mission of SPRINGBOARD® is to provide the best non-profit community service dedicated to delivering professional personal finance education, confidential counseling, and debt reduction programs to strengthen our communities through loss reduction.

Core values are the essential and enduring tenets of any organization. Our leadership challenge is to communicate the intrinsic importance of these, so that a deep understanding and validation of these exists throughout the organization.
