We have world-class funders that include the U.S. government, former Google CEO Eric Schmidt, and leading foundations.

Combining direct services and advocacy, we’re fighting this injustice.

To learn more, read why we started Upsolve in 2016, our reviews from past users, and our press coverage from places like the New York Times and Wall Street Journal.
