Shared Harvest Fund, is the brainchild of Briana DeCuir, MD (Class of 2010) and NanaEfua Afoh Manin, MD (Class of 2011). The organization launched in November of 2017. Its purpose is to help promote volunteerism. For a small membership fee, volunteer users sign up for the platform, build a profile page, post their skills, social causes of interest, and start building their network. Once volunteers are paired with a nonprofit organization and complete the service, Shared Harvest Fund will award a stipend to the user and make a payment directly to the student lender in $500 denominations. Users can complete as many projects they desire, earning up to $5,000 a year max up to the maximum amount of their student loan debt.
Some of Shared Harvest Fund benefits include: student loan debt relief, student loan debt management education and helping promote the culture of volunteerism.
