Gradifi is Gratitude

We want to provide more than just a job perk or benefit. We want to provide a thank you. Thank you for studying. Thank you for learning. Thank you for working so hard.

Taking on A Powerful Challenge

We started with the simple belief that we could not sit idly by as 40 million of us were in the grip of one of the biggest financial stressors of our age. Student debt. In response, we formed a company made up of some of the industry’s most experienced professionals to help people break the stranglehold that the financial costs of education have on people every day.

Gradifi was founded in January 2014 and joined the E*TRADE family of businesses in December 2019. Gradifi is leading the way in providing innovative financial benefits that empower employers to help their people work toward brighter financial futures with contributions to their student loans, options to refinance their loans and help to create nest eggs for their children’s educational futures.

As employers have raised their hands to help, our team has grown, yet we remain as dedicated to hard work and service as the people we serve. We remain grounded in the pillars that have led companies large and small to choose Gradifi to build the engaged and loyal workforce that will empower their futures.
