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.
