Did you know that a child is seven times more likely to attend college simply by having a college savings account named for them? With that being said, it is never too early or too late to get started with Gift Of College, and it has never been easier.

All too often, we use words like "saving," "investing," "529s" and "mutual funds," but what we are really talking about is changing the way that we give gifts to the people in our lives who matter most. So this year, instead of toys and clothes, give the gift of a successful future, and a debt-free start. Give the people you care about the Gift of College

The way it works is very simple: register a child and link an existing college savings plan, or a new savings plan to their account. Then invite friends and family to contribute through secure online credit card transactions, or for a more personal touch, by purchasing GiftOfCollege gift cards from your local retailer. That’s it, and with three simple steps your child can experience the Gift Of College.
