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. Over the next few months, we want families to continue to feel encouraged and inspired to save for college. There are several upcoming community events to help spread this message, and we hope many of you can participate. See below for some exciting opportunities.
- The U.Fund Dreams Tour: A pop-up event at festivals and regional events across the Commonwealth, the Dreams Tour provides a fun, interactive experience for everyone in the family. Children participate in fun activities to help them dream about the future, while parents learn important and helpful details about saving for college. There are even representatives on hand to answer questions and provide guidance on college savings. Check out the MEFA events calendar to find a Dreams Tour location near you.
- 529 Day: Across the country, May 29th marks 529 Day, an opportunity to learn more about and celebrate 529 college savings plans, like the Massachusetts U.Fund College Investing Plan. Here in the Commonwealth, we’ll commemorate 529 Day with an appearance by Governor Charlie Baker, an exciting Facebook Live event, and tons of action on social media to provide facts, tips, and key guidance on college savings. Don’t miss the celebration – get the details here.
- SeedMA Enrollment Events: If you haven’t yet registered for SeedMA, attend an in-person enrollment event where you can receive information and sign up for the program. Check out the SeedMA events calendar for an opportunity near you.
Once you’re enrolled in SeedMA, we encourage you to set up automatic monthly deposits into your U.Fund 529 account to keep your savings account growing. And we’re always available for any questions you have about how to save or the details of your account. Call us anytime at (800) 449-6332.
