We're a mission-driven organization building a better way for you to pay for education after high school -- regardless of your background.
Better Future Forward is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. We aim to demonstrate the value of a progressive, income-based financing approach to education – with the hope that others will follow our lead and make this option available to all students who could potentially benefit from it. Our ultimate goal is to free students from the burdens of debt and help every individual who is willing to work hard achieve their potential.
