Our Mission

EDvestinU® is the private student loan program of the nonprofit NHHEAF Network. EDvestinU’s mission is to provide affordable college funding options to students nationwide. With industry–leading rates and nationally recognized loan servicing, students, parents and post-secondary schools can have every confidence that EDvestinU borrowers are provided with the tools needed to make educated financing decisions.

Our Network

The New Hampshire Higher Education Assistance Foundation (NHHEAF) Network has nearly 60 years of experience in helping New Hampshire families plan and pay for higher education. The NHHEAF Network aspires to be recognized as a capable, trusted, and innovative leader in educational loan services that enhance the promotion, advancement, and support of higher education for our state and our region. As such, we provide K – 12 and postsecondary students and schools with expertise in every aspect of the student loan industry.

In April 2020, The NHHEAF Network was formed as two of our entities – the New Hampshire Higher Education Loan Corporation (NHHELCO) and Granite State Management & Resources (GSM&R) - merged together, resulting in one combined nonprofit organization. Our loan servicing operations continue to do business as GSM&R nationwide.

As a nonprofit lender, proceeds are reinvested in borrower incentives which reduce the cost of borrowing, scholarship programs which reduce the need to borrow, and educational outreach which increase aspirations for higher education.

NHHEAF Network Cares

In 2014, The NHHEAF Network Organizations created NHHEAF Network Cares, an employee initiative through which food and monetary donations would be voluntarily collected in exchange for the opportunity to dress in casual attire.

In addition to supporting “Casual Days for Charity”, we also began offering one “Volunteer Day” per calendar year to each employee. Staff members are encouraged to perform community service throughout the state of New Hampshire and may use their “Volunteer Day” to support an organization of their choice. This allows our employees to expand their involvement with a favorite nonprofit, or to perhaps volunteer with an organization for the first time.

We are proud of the difference our employees make in their communities, whether through this initiative or their own individual efforts.
