member college promotional toolkit

Get started today

Membership in Private College 529 Plan speaks volumes. It demonstrates your school’s commitment to affordability and, unlike a state-sponsored 529 plan, we're an option you provide. The following toolkit includes a variety of turnkey resources to make promoting your membership easy.

Everyday toolkit

For colleges already promoting their membership, we can be found under financial tools & resources, early college planning, and student payment options. Be careful about lumping us in with other savings plans like a state 529. Your membership is special.

Promoting your membership can be as easy as a few sentences – we help provide. Take a look!
