On May 25, it’s time to celebrate National College Savings Day – in an effort to raise awareness of California’s ScholarShare college savings plan. This Wednesday, for one day only, Californians who open a ScholarShare account with just $50 can earn an additional $50 in matching funds!
ScholarShare is a state-sponsored, tax-advantaged 529 college savings plan that helps individuals and families plan for the cost of higher education.
ScholarShare funds can be used at any eligible educational institution in the nation, and some abroad, for a variety of qualified higher education expenses.
Named for the section of the IRS code under which they were created, 529 plans offer valuable tax advantages for families saving for college. Simply put: an easy and affordable way to save for your higher education goals!
