Deborah B. Goldberg
Massachusetts State Treasurer
Since day one of my administration, the Office of Economic Empowerment, the first in the nation, has been a leader in breaking down financial barriers that harm families and threaten our economy.
We know some of the toughest challenges facing students today are rising tuitions and enormous debt. […]
The SeedMA program has educated families throughout Worcester and Monson (and beyond) about the importance of saving for college. By setting aside funds for the college education of current kindergarten students, families are opening doors to the future and ensuring that their children will have options when it comes time to explore higher education.

Executive Director of the Massachusetts Association for Community Action (MASSCAP)
Lately I have been thinking about the Declaration of Independence and a few of its most famous assertions. The ones that I continue to come back to relate to equality and rights: “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all [people] are created equal” and that we have “certain inalienable rights” including the right to pursue happiness.
SeedMA is helping families like yours learn the importance of saving for college. And we want to encourage you to save as much as possible on a regular basis. We know that there are many demands on your household finances. But dedicating even a small amount of your income per month toward college savings can make a big impact on your child’s future. […]
SeedMA Fellow and Future College Graduate
The path each of us takes to reach our aspirations is different, the champions and loved ones who are there to guide us vary by person, but no one reaches their aspirations without a strong foundation to build upon. This is the story of my path, and the foundation that was my mother’s commitment to my future.
As a family, you know you need to save for college costs, and we applaud those of you who may have already begun to save through the SeedMA program or on your own. Whether you’ve started a college savings account or not, you may need encouragement (and possibly some assistance) to keep focused on your college savings goal. And that’s why MEFA is here.
