Our Initiatives

  • One Tree Planted

    Starting in late 2016, LendEDU partnered with One Tree Planted to help with global reforestation and to make our Earth a better place. For every loan that is funded through our platform, we will plant a tree through One Tree Planted. We hope that other companies will follow suit and help make our planet more sustainable and healthy because, at the end of the day, it's all we have (for now)!

  • LendEDU Scholarship

    Every Fall and Spring, we offer two $1,000 scholarships to two high school and college students in the United States to help them pay for college and avoid excess student debt. The scholarship winners are chosen based on the required essays that they submit. Prompts usually relate to managing money during and after college. Check here for more information.
