Gifting outside the box

Baby showers, report cards, a great game—all perfect opportunities for a my529 gift

Special occasions call for the perfect gift.

Make it easy for family and friends to congratulate your beneficiaries on their achievements and milestones by activating the my529 Gift Program.

When you enroll in the my529 Gift Program, you receive a personal gift page and a unique gift code you can share. That way, your loved ones can donate directly—and securely—to your beneficiary’s my529 account, while your account details remain confidential.

Keep the my529 Gift Program in mind for events big and small. You can even get your beneficiaries involved in giving the gift of education to themselves.

Graduation—Celebrate Pre-K to grad school and beyond.

Report cards—Mark the end of a semester with a contribution to your child’s my529 account.

Birthdays—The advent of another year is a great time to invest in your child’s future.

Special occasions—Baby showers, recitals, athletic events, religious occasions, and more.

Holidays—Invite your family to contribute a holiday gift that lasts with my529.
