The Backer Foundation

Saving for college is never easy, but it can feel impossible for families in challenging financial circumstances. The Backer Foundation exists to help these families, because every family deserves good financial advice and every child deserves a college fund.

Low-income families that qualify for a Backer Scholarship can start using Backer for free and will receive a $25 monthly bonus for up to 6 months.
