June 2018 Update

Exodus Lending in the News!

Our executive director, Sara Nelson-Pallmeyer, spent this past Monday, June 4th, in Moorhead. She, along with co-hosts Mayor Del Rae Williams, Minnesota House Rep. Ben Lien and city council member Heidi Durand, held a meeting with church leaders, nonprofits, county agencies and financial institution representatives to talk about the payday loan debt trap, the work we do helping Minnesotans escape with dignity, and alternatives to payday loan borrowing. It was an energizing day of ideas and planning to encourage persons in that part of Minnesota avoid and recover from the payday loan debt trap.

Check out the coverage of this event in this article from the Duluth News-Tribune to learn more.


Thank you, Sisters of St. Joseph!
Exodus Lending recently received a grant from the Sisters of St. Joseph Partners in Justice. We are grateful for their continued support and are proud to stand with them as partners in the work securing a more economically just Minnesota. With their funding support, we will continue our outreach efforts in regions such as Moorhead, Rochester, and St. Cloud so that we can help more Minnesotans out of payday loan debt.


Celebrate with us June 26th!
All these exciting accomplishments call for a celebration. Fortunately, our annual June summer fundraiser is just around the corner. Join us for an evening of trivia at Urban Growler Brewery on June 26th from 5:30 pm to 8:00 pm. We’d love to see you there! Tickets are $20 until June 21st.

Thank you for helping make our 3rd annual summer fundraiser a huge success! The energy in the room was terrific, and the program left us feeling inspired. Thank you to one of our participants, Missy, for sharing how she broke free from payday loan debt, and to Claudia Holt for stumping us all with fun financial trivia. Thanks as well to Urban Growler for the venue and excellent service.

We are honored to have your support as we continue our work eliminating payday loan debt for Minnesotans. Thank you!
