WHILE CANDIDATE ARE CAMPAIGNING, WE'RE TAKING ACTION. HELP US TO PROVE WE CAN RAISE $1M TOWARDS CRUSHING STUDENT LOAN DEBT
Everyone, from politicians to investors, chief executives to parents, is concerned about the student loan debt crisis. Whether you're an HR manager, cash-strapped single mother, doctor, blogger, entrepreneur, recent graduate or still in undergrad, you feel the weight of this financial burden. It impacts so many aspects of our life: we stay longer at jobs we do not like because a steady check seems more reasonable than taking a chance on happiness, we forego buying a house, we do not take vacations, and we delay having children. We pick up mindless side-gigs to fill in the gap which makes us even increasingly mentally unavailable, financially vulnerable, and yearning for more meaningful impact in our lives.
With the rise of student debt, many of us simply can’t afford to do pro bono work. Meanwhile, nonprofit organizations have limited human resource capacity and often need professional services that their budgets can't afford. And while US Corporations are investing $4.2 trillion in employee wellness and over $20 billion annually on corporate social responsibility activities, they aren't addressing the #1 employee-identified pain point: employee student debt.
Why we are needed
Student loan debt affects 44 million Americans with women and minorities being disproportionately affected. We are the only program that specifically outreaches to the professional women in the US who carry over $900 billion of the 1.5 trillion of student loan debt. Shared Harvest is investing in individuals who sought to invest in their education only to become beholden to debt. We are tackling the gender pay and intergenerational wealth gap in a unique way to give women the financial flexibility to follow their passions. When women win, our families, our companies and our communities all win.
Shared Harvest is alleviating some of the financial burden through our on-demand platform which rewards student loan debt holders for doing good in the community.
How we tackle the problem of student loan debt:
Shared Harvest supports the people capital that is needed to get things done. We have a B2B and B2C model SaaS platform. Members sign up, create a profile listing their skills and then choose which cause they want to champion. Our smart technology creates unique matches to nonprofit organizations in need of services and we reward our volunteers with a student loan repayment stipend funded through your participating employer or through our Shared Harvest Fund membership network. As a benefit corporation, we are mission-driven to champion the financial health and total well-being of our users. Nonprofit organizations receive the help they need, complete with project management support, and you pay down your student loan debt faster!
We help businesses maximize ROI
The best social impact a company can make is by being a great employer and allowing your employees to drive impact. This happens when companies address the pain points of their employees and elevate their good work. Shared Harvest offers a student loan debt relief (SLDR) benefit & rewards program tied to service. We maximize employee engagement at reduced cost while boosting corporate social responsibility (CSR) activities. By addressing the financial health of today's workforce and supporting social causes, you become a top company to work for and create the best brand loyalists around - your employees!
Shared Harvest is a win-win for employees and entrepreneurs who want to reduce student debt and for our corporate partners who want to level up impact, better engage employees, and improve corporate social responsibility
Why we are crowdfunding
The money raised on ifundwomen will help further develop our second generation matching technology, third-party plugins, financial services tools, and project management in order to fully expand operations.
After 20+ years of service locally and globally, NanaEfua has learned one valuable lesson: money comes and goes, but people driven movements last forever. The student debt crisis won't fix itself. Black women, our families and our communities are negatively impacted the most. We must be part of the conversation and the solution.
