Student Debt Webinar by CalNonprofits

Is student debt suffocating you or your colleagues? Join us for a webinar on options for getting your debt forgiven


If you work for a nonprofit and have student loans, you need to know about Public Service Loan Forgiveness (PSLF) program. Started in 2007 by President Bush, this program helps graduates accept nonprofit or government jobs and stay in the public sector. PSLF forgives student loan debt for nonprofit or government employees after 120 qualifying payments (10 years' worth), as long as they meet a number of additional requirements.

"Public Service Loan Forgiveness is pretty much my sole lifeline to the American Dream at this point... Home ownership/new car buying/all that sort of stuff are out of reach. What's interesting is that I needed this graduate degree to even get employed in this field." - Nonprofit employee, responding to CalNonprofits survey

Join us for an eye-opening webinar where you'll learn about:

  • what to do NOW so your debt gets forgiven in the future;
  • how to take advantage of the Temporarily Expanded PSLF
  • repayment plans that could lower your monthly payments;
  • eligibility criteria for PSLF;
  • how the new tax bill (and other legislation) could impact your student loans and PSLF; and
  • why student debt is a public policy issue for nonprofits.

Wednesday August 1st at 2pm (EST)
