[Press Release] Vita to Provide Free Student Loan Benefit to Non-Profits

Vita announced a new partnership with Summer, a leading end-to-end workplace student loan solution. This partnership honors the work of Vita’s non-profit clients by providing their employees free student loan support and navigation services, specifically with the government’s Public Service Loan Forgiveness (PSLF) program.

“Vita’s partnership with Summer helps our amazing non-profit clients deliver impactful student debt relief to their employees so they can continue doing important work in our communities,” says Erik Hansen, President at Vita. “By subsidizing this benefit for non-profits, we can help reduce benefits costs so employer benefit dollars can remain mission focused.”

“Vita’s non-profit clients are in a unique position to help their employees by leveraging PSLF,” says Dan Macklin, President at Summer. “Summer guides these employees through the complicated PSLF process, resulting in a 95% application acceptance rate and saving users an average of $40,000, equivalent to an average of a six percent salary raise.”

This partnership will have the following impact:

  • Help non-profits attract and retain top talent with 20% improved attrition.

  • Support employers’ Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging (DEIB) efforts by assisting those who need it the most. More than two-thirds of student loan borrowers are women and BIPOC.

  • Capitalize on government funding, helping 50-80% of employees save on their monthly student loan payments.
