Nonprofit Student Debt Project logo

What kind of impact does student debt have on the nonprofit workforce? On our sector’s ability to retain workers? How many nonprofits are supporting, or know how to support, their staff with student debt?

We think it’s high time for new data and a fresh take on this troubling issue. You can help by taking about 3-5 minutes to complete our Nonprofit Student Debt Survey. The results will help shape our education and advocacy agenda as we work to address the ways that student debt has impacted our community.

Who should participate?

Employers – anyone from your nonprofit (or fiscally sponsored) organization who can provide information about whether or not the organization is actively involved in PSLF

Employees – if you have student debt and you work for a nonprofit 501(c)3 organization, or fiscally sponsored project, we want to hear from you!

Your participation in the survey is critical! The survey will be open for two weeks and submissions will be accepted until March 26th.

The Nonprofit Student Debt Project is an initiative of CalNonprofits to educate nonprofit staff and employers, advocate for public policy changes, and engage the nonprofit community on the problem of student debt and its impact on the nonprofit workforce. We are indebted to the new members of our Student Debt Task Force who helped shape this survey, and to the Walter S. Johnson Foundation for their funding support.
