The deadline to sign up for Washington’s GET program is May 31st. To raise awareness about the program and how to save for future higher ed expenditures…I have college savings tips all week!
So far they’ve been…start early, every little bit helps, make spending swaps, still apply for financial aid…and today it’s enlist family and friends!
The saying “it takes a village” to raise a child easily applies to saving for college too. Friends and family can make significant contributions to a child’s college savings account over time through birthday, holiday and graduation gifts. E-gifting makes it easy to contribute to a GET account online and loved ones will appreciate the valuable gift idea.
