The Shared Harvest Fund is the first platform of its kind to tackle the student debt crisis head on while simultaneously addressing the decline in volunteerism. The online platform connects talented students and professionals with social causes that they care about through skills-based volunteering. Members signup online, complete a profile page that will later match them with short- term project-based deliverables that can be done locally or remotely. Members then start engaging with the nonprofit agency directly as they work on their projects and often establish a lasting relationship beyond project completion. Once satisfactorily completed, they receive a digital evaluation and are rewarded with a randomized student loan debt stipend in order to keep the spirit of volunteering at the forefront. At its core, it’s a remarkable way of developing one’s professional skills and leveraging talent in the nonprofit sector while also addressing the number one pain point that keeps most graduates and professionals who have limited time due to financial restraints from volunteering. Through their Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) program, companies can buy into the SHF platform for their employees and or sponsor a package of projects or sponsor a number of nonprofits to join the platform. This is particularly advantageous for companies who want more reliable tracking of how and where donation funds are being used. The SHF Employer Student Loan Repayment option is an attractive offering for companies to help recruit and retain top talent and a diverse workforce, while increasing employee retention through a student loan repayment program and volunteer programming. The Shared Harvest Fund business model is truly a win-win for each stakeholder and has rippling social impact.
Debt relief mindfully! The only platform that rewards our skills-based volunteers with student debt relief stipends.
