The ACC for Educational Justice program aims to serve communities
Your gift will be used to support students to complete their education completely interest-free.

As an organization whose primary mission is to facilitate ease in attaining higher education through interest-free loans, we feel the need to do our part, even if it’s a drop in the ocean.
