Volunteer for non-profits and get help paying down student loan debt.
SponsorChange.org provides non-profits a solution to increase their impact. Non-profits can easily recruit skilled college graduates to complete service projects and raise funds from sponsors to reward their work with student loan payments, helping both non-profits and college graduates reach their full potential.
SponsorChange.org envisions a world where non-profit organizations are equipped with the resources necessary to have the highest impact in their community, country and the world.
-Non-Profits deserve the best talent
-Higher Education should be accessible to everyone
-Young Adults should be free to offer their skills to help solve community problems
-Donors should have the ability to track their contributions at non-profits
Two-thirds of college students borrow to pay for college. Their average debt load is over $23,000 by the time they graduate and job wages have only modestly increased—leaving less money to pay the bills.
College graduates are working two or more jobs to make ends meet, leaving little time to volunteer.
Volunteer rates of college students decrease dramatically after graduation. As a result, non-profits and ultimately under-served communities lose out.
Non-profit organizations have to do more with less funding. The impact of non-profits lies in its ability to recruit, manage, and retain volunteers.
