Dun & Bradstreet Credibility understands that some of the most economically impacted companies need the very products they can’t afford when it comes to starting up or staying afloat. This is why its commitment to the Clinton Global Initiative (CGI) is centered on identifying economically impacted businesses that need our products but cannot afford to make a purchase at this time.
Dun & Bradstreet Credibility will donate in aggregate up to $1 million in free credit monitoring and credit building services to businesses that its Credit Advisors determine to be struggling. Learn more about its commitment here.
