It is a bittersweet morning for our team at Exodus Lending. Today, we launch our virtual fundraiser, Ctrl+Alt+Del Debt amidst a nationwide wave of ache and anger.
We grieve with you. We hear you, and we are here with you.
Despite the hurt, Exodus Lending will continue to fight for justice by dismantling predatory lending. We hope you will join us, as we launch our fundraiser this week, in recognizing and supporting this work.
We welcome you with this message from our Board President, Eric Howard, who reflects on this moment and invites you to join us in creating the equitable world we deserve.
Our schedule, including Friday’s live event, is subject to change. Visit our webpage for updates.
That’s what our work at Exodus Lending, and our week-long Ctrl+Alt+Del Debt virtual fundraiser, including today’s launch, is all about. Please join us as you’re able as we post videos and articles about the problem of payday lending, what we’re doing to fight it, and how you can support our efforts. Thanks to an $11,000 match, your gifts this week may have double the impact as we push to raise $36,000 to represent our goal of a 36% interest rate cap and have five new sustaining donors to celebrate our five years of lending.
Thank you to everyone choosing to fight against injustice, as you are able. We are proud and honored to stand with you all as we build a better, more equitable Minnesota.
Follow us on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and LinkedIn, and share our posts throughout the week.
Exodus Lending mourns the tragic loss of George Floyd’s life at the hands of the police. We stand with the community in grieving and in the continued fight for justice.
As we ask you to financially support Exodus Lending, we also encourage you to stay connected with local organizations by following or contributing to Holy Trinity Lutheran Church, CTUL , the Minnesota Freedom Fund, or another local group.
Please follow their guidance as the situation evolves, as we trust they can best direct you to other organizations if needed.
