Every child deserves a college fund

Hear Backer families share their stories of saving together.

We really needed to start saving for our baby. I love that family members can make contributions. Instead of giving the baby gifts or monetary gifts they can just make a contribution towards their college fund. It makes me feel comfortable knowing we are saving for his future.
