About Us

College is a main route out of poverty, a cornerstone in the building of a great society, and a key hiring prerequisite for many employers. And yet, far too many students are facing poverty during college, requiring them to spend time ensuring their basic needs are met and keeping them from completing their degrees. Believe in Students is the nation’s only non-profit organization focused exclusively on helping college students meet their basic living expenses. We do this work by listening when students tell us what they need, and then developing innovative solutions that are grounded in evidence, sustainability, and the potential for scale.

We are passionate about breaking down barriers and addressing the systemic inequities that many students face to ensure all students have their basic needs met so that they can learn and thrive.
