SALT - money knowledge for college and beyond (saltmoney.org)

Part of the reason for working for a non-profit organization, is the benefit of feeling like I am helping out my fellow man instead of working to help out a shareholders pocket.  Don't get me wrong, I am a shareholder and need those publicly traded companies that I help to support continue to do well too-- The 'student debt' problem in our country, is a big one though -- and few companies are really trying to take the issue head on.   Our countries youth signs away far too much of their future before truly understanding the debt they are taking on.

ASA has created a website called Saltmoney.org and its primary purpose is to help you out with financial education and handling student loan debt.  In a few years, the site has grown a lot -- from a content and tools perspective, from number of users, and from a usability perspective.  

The site is now mobile friendly, thanks to mobile-first design decisions, and our talented development team worked hard to ensure the site works well in many screen resolutions (responsive design) on a multitude of devices.  The site will mature even further and become the  go to resource for student loan and basic financial topics lessons and tools.

I have been working for the last few years on this noble endeavor, and wish ASA and Saltmoney.org the best in the future.  Keep on innovating, and always remember -- your users need you now more than ever.
