White House Partnership

We partnered with First Lady, Michelle Obama, to help students save and pay for college.

The First Lady believes that if you get a better education, you will have a better career, a better future and live a better life.

We agree!


“Better Make Room has been so fortunate to partner with many great partners, including Napkin Finance. Together, we’ve developed unique, easy-to-understand content that help students understand complex topics such as completing the FAFSA form or learning how to save for college.”
