Oct. 31 is a key date for
Public Service Student Loan Forgiveness
This brief article isn’t about tax or financial advice but a “heads up” to all of you who are working in the nonprofit sector and have student loans. Nor is this appeal about the $10,000 forgiveness that was recently announced. It’s about the long-standing forgiveness program that the federal government created many years ago, specifically for nonprofit and public sector workers, but only recently has made fully operational.
If you, your employees, or someone you care about have federal student loans, please encourage them to take a few minutes to see how they might be able to get on track to improve their situation by tens of thousands of dollars. This week’s podcast features a conversation with Damian Dunn at Your Money Line here in Indianapolis. We talked a little bit about the Public Service Student Loan Forgiveness program and process. 

To be clear, the program is ongoing, but the government is giving borrowers some leeway until Oct. 31 to correct shortfalls, encouraging people who have been turned down in the past to get more payments counted, and ensuring that borrowers are in the queue for potential forgiveness after 120 payments. Go to for more information.
In our conversation, Damian shared how an employee for one of their client companies was able to get 100 monthly payments reclassified as eligible — over eight years’ worth. Now that individual is less than two years away from forgiveness of their remaining balance.
Here is an article from Nonprofit Quarterly that goes into more detail about the program.
I would love to hear your success stories as well. Please email me at

We want to recognize board leaders
For most board members, board leadership roles come with a commitment and investment of time and resources to support a cause they care about. However, for the individual who steps up to serve as board president or chair, the role comes with the assumption of overall responsibility for the nonprofit and guiding the organization’s path forward.  

As we continue to share news of board leaders who have taken the helm, we encourage you to recognize and thank these individuals for tackling the role, because as a community member you recognize the value of his or her investment to help keep the sector strong.  

If you want to announce your organization’s new board leader, please send name, position and a head shot HERE.

We are open to other ways we can support and recognize board leaders. Send us your thoughts or tell us a story about a board leader who has made a difference in your organization. Share your ideas with Bryan Orander, president.
