About Moneythink

Moneythink‘s new college affordability comparison tool, DecidED, is positioned to tackle the inter-related college affordability and debt challenge at the scale and urgency at which it exists. DecidED helps students make confident, real time, holistic enrollment decisions using the most essential information — and all aligned with their individual goals and financial circumstances. In turn, students are able to equip themselves by building long-term financial wellness habits.

Since 2008, Moneythink’s youth-focused financial capability work has served more than 32,000 high school students across the country. Along the way, we’ve received humbling recognition, such as receiving Capital One’s 2020 Give Back Nonprofit of the Year Award, Goldman Sachs’ Impact Challenge Fan Favorite Award, The MassChallenge Winner, White House Champion of Change Award under President Obama, and many others. We’ve also been lucky to collaborate with leading design and behavioral science firms who have greatly shaped our work, such as Ideo.org, Ideas42, PwC, and Fast Forward.

DecidED is Moneythink’s next big bet: With DecidED, we’re bringing personalized and scalable financial tools to millions of students. If you want to help create a clearer path to college graduation, successful careers without the burden of debt, and the opportunity to help shape a more inclusive, equitable economy for all, then this is the team for you!
