Lower Debt by Fundraising: Attract the collective power of your family, friends and the community with a PYT profile by fundraising to lower your loan amount.

For Students

Apply for your funding needs by completing a profile. A complete PYT Profile includes a Facebook, LinkedIN and Twitter account to increase your chances for approval. While awaiting approval results we encourage you to do your best to lower your debt by attracting the collective power of your family, friends, and community. This step is referred to as crowdfunding. We provide the platform to create and share your funding campaign with a “Kickstarter” or “GoFundMe” style profile. Students nationwide are reducing their student loans by using our community gifting platform to lower the amount financed. All funds raised on the platform and the approved loan amount are sent directly to the college or university you are officially enrolled.

Donor Benefits

The mission of Pay Your Tuition Foundation is to use technology and data to build an alternative funding platform that provides students and families with the power to lower the educational debt burden with scholarships and micro-lending products. We aim to provide socially responsible financial products as the first solution to obtain an education. As a donor to the PYT Foundation, your gift is tax deductible. Funds from this pool are used to originate micro-loans and need-based scholarships.

Alternative Solutions

Pay Your Tuition will be able to help. We have alternative loan types for all credit profiles. A credit score is not the only way to qualify for a loan. Apply today for pre-approval to alternative solutions.
