About Upsolve

Upsolve is an award-winning legal services nonprofit that helps low-income families file for bankruptcy for free. We do this through the first TurboTax for bankruptcy. In the last six months, we’ve relieved over $30M in debt for 500+ families. Upsolve helps more families file for bankruptcy than any other nonprofit in the United States.

Bankruptcy is a lifeline for Americans because it wipes their slate clean, improves their credit, and increases their chances of getting a job. We’ve set out to make the lifeline accessible for free to anyone who needs it. In 2018, Upsolve won the New York Times Good Tech Award. In 2019, Fast Company named Upsolve the Winner of its World Changing Ideas Award for Social Justice.

We’re supported by top funders. This includes Y Combinator, the Robin Hood Foundation, the Hewlett Foundation, the U.S. Government through the Legal Services Corporation, and Harvard. We’re also funded by Eric Schmidt, Vinod Khosla, Jim Breyer, and Chris Sacca.

Here are recent articles about Upsolve from the Wall Street Journal, the Washington PostForbes, and Fast Company.

Upsolve is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that started in 2016. Our mission is to help low-income families who cannot afford lawyers file bankruptcy for free, using an online web app. Spun out of Harvard Law School, our team includes lawyers, engineers, and judges. We have world-class funders that include the U.S. government, former Google CEO Eric Schmidt, and leading foundations. It's one of the greatest civil rights injustices of our time that low-income families can’t access their basic rights when they can’t afford to pay for help. Combining direct services and advocacy, we’re fighting this injustice.
