Helping families plan & pay for college
Education Finance Council (EFC) is the national trade association representing nonprofit and state-based higher education finance organizations. These entities strive to increase postsecondary access and affordability in their states and nationwide.
In the past year alone, EFC Members provided over 2.5 million families the resources needed to successfully plan, save, and pay for college. These resources include FAFSA completion events and help centers, scholarship programs, college planning centers, financial aid workshops and information sessions, financial literacy workshops, and support services for members of the military, veterans, and at-risk and low-income youth, including homeless and foster youth.
A number of EFC Members are also working collaboratively within their states to implement education-to-employment pathways programs that address specific workforce development needs in their states.
