You should create an option to become a sustaining donor. I would donate $10-20/mo. This issue means a lot to me.

TISLA is a wonderful and invaluable service to help borrowers navigate their student loans. I was recently approved for TEPSLF and do not think I would have gotten that far without Betsy's help!

Thank you for the wonderful work you're doing! I'm a financial coach in Portland, Maine, and so many of my clients are struggling with student loan debt - it's an epidemic for sure! I heard you on the DSM podcast and will definitely be spreading the word about your work.


Also heard about your great work from the DSM podcast. Thank you for all you do to help on this important issue.


Heard you on death, sex, and money—thanks for what you do. I’m a math teacher at a college that primarily serves first gen, low income students (and I would love to help them w this) and a mom of a hs senior who will likely need loans-so I think your work is so important.

Also heard about your great work from the DSM podcast. Thank you for your tireless work on this important issue. I also had a really hard time figuring out where to donate until I found the heart logo from Donorbox.



Hi! I just listened to the DS&M podcast and wanted to thank you for the important work you’re doing. PS- You should make it easier to figure out how to donate to your org! I hunted all over your site and found nothing!
