We'll match up to $500 when you enroll with auto-contributions and give you another $500 after 1 year of maintaining auto-contributions

So many parents want to give their children the option of a private college education, but concerns about affordability hold them back. That’s why Private College 529 Plan was established 20 years ago by a group of colleges and universities. We help families save on the cost of a private college education with guaranteed prepaid tuition at nearly 300 schools nationwide. This year, to celebrate the plan’s 20th anniversary, we’re helping eligible alumni of our member colleges jump-start college savings for their own children.

Our 20th Anniversary Alumni Match is limited to the first 300 accounts.
