Get everyone involved in your year-end gifting

As we draw even closer to the end of 2018, we’ll see our weeks full of holidays. October, November and December are filled with opportunities for families and friends to gather together. Our account owners are the biggest advocates for College Savings Iowa, and these family gatherings are a great time to talk to friends and family about getting involved in saving for a brighter future.

It takes a village to raise a child, and with the whole family chipping in even a little bit, we can make  sure our children and grandchildren have every opportunity to achieve the future they dream of.

One way to get everyone involved is through Ugift®. Ugift is a free, secure online service that lets you request contributions toward a child’s 529 plan account as a gift. College Savings Iowa account owners can log on to their accounts and click on the Ugift option to get their Ugift code to share with family and friends.

The gift of education is about as good as it gets. It’s easy to purchase, it can help shape your children’s future, and it can give your family and friends the satisfaction of knowing they helped along the way.
