Company Summary

LoftE is a nonprofit focused on a significantly under-served audience: middle-income students who are unable to pay for their first-choice colleges and, thus, often must attend lower-caliber institutions. Our goal is to help these students attend the college of their choice by helping them pay for their four-year college costs. We then recycle a small part of students' post-graduation salaries (7%) to help new generations pay for college as well.
