Our Mission: Help Americans Achieve Financial Health

Churchill Mortgage is passionate about helping Americans achieve financial health. Americans have over $2 trillion in consumer debt and more than 30% have no extra cash, forcing them to live paycheck-to-paycheck.* Financial education is the first step towards healthier financial decisions and overall financial freedom.

At Churchill, we are committed to educating our clients on one of the biggest financial decisions of their lives. By providing resources, tools and 25 years of industry experience we display our heart of a teacher with each client. We want our customers to be educated on what a mortgage will mean to their overall financial strategy. Making your home a blessing, not a burden.

We believe that financial education can equip students to make smarter decisions that last a lifetime. We are proud to support financial literacy education in schools by sponsoring Dave Ramsey’s Foundations of Personal Finance curriculum. More than 3 million students have been empowered to make sound financial decisions as a result of this program.

There’s no doubt that this curriculum changes lives. Here’s what a few teachers had to say:

Every parent who comments about the course materials is extremely positive and states, 'I wish I had been taught this information when I was in school.' We've been able to have great discussions on students, education, and financial matters because of the Dave Ramsey materials.

— James G., Teacher

I love this curriculum. The program catches and holds the attention of our young people through real-life connections. Our students love the fact that the information is relevant to their lives, and they may apply the concepts immediately. An added bonus for us was the feedback we received from parents—their children were continuing financial discussions at home and shared what they were learning.

— Carrie D., Teacher

We at Churchill Mortgage are proud to support Financial Literacy Month as part of our goal to educate and guide Americans towards a smarter mortgage plan.
