The Backer Foundation
Because every family deserves smart financial advice, and every child deserves a college fund.
Saving for college is never easy, but it can feel impossible for some families. We started the Backer Foundation in 2020 to help low-income families get started with college savings.
We believe higher education is critical to unlocking a young person’s full potential and we’re making it easier for every family to take that step.
Even small college savings can put a child in need on a promising educational path.
Even less than $500 will increase outcomes.
They’ll be 3x more likely to go to college.
And 4x more likely to graduate.
