The NHHEAF Network Organizations has over 50 years of experience in helping families plan and pay for higher education. The Organizations are comprised of three independent, 501(c)(3) nonprofit agencies: New Hampshire Higher Education Assistance Foundation (NHHEAF), Granite State Management & Resources (GSM&R) and New Hampshire Higher Education Loan Corporation (NHHELCO). The interconnectedness of these organizations provides students and schools with expertise in all aspects of the student loan industry. The NHHEAF Network Organizations aspires to be recognized as one of the Nation’s most capable, trusted, and innovative leaders in educational loan services that enhance the promotion, advancement, and support of higher education for our state and our region.
The Organizations’ business model and structure has provided significant efficiencies and cost savings. Beyond its own doors, student and parent borrowers, K-12 schools and local nonprofit agencies have benefited tremendously by these savings. Student loan earnings are reinvested in the Organizations and in the greater New Hampshire community. Reinvestment is achieved through cost-saving borrower benefits, default prevention expertise, college planning, and charitable giving. All of the programs and services accomplished at the Organizations are made possible by the dedication and oversight of three separate, independent boards of trustees.

In 2014, The NHHEAF Network Organizations created NHHEAF Network Cares, an employee initiative through which food and monetary donations would be voluntarily collected in exchange for the opportunity to dress in casual attire.
In addition to supporting “Casual Days for Charity”, we also began offering one “Volunteer Day” per calendar year to each employee. Staff members are encouraged to perform community service throughout the state of New Hampshire and may use their “Volunteer Day” to support an organization of their choice. This allows our employees to expand their involvement with a favorite nonprofit, or to perhaps volunteer with an organization for the first time.
We are proud of the difference our employees make in their communities, whether through this initiative or their own individual efforts.
