Did you know that 91 percent of parents expect their children will attend college? And that 89 percent of them expect to help pay for it? The good news is you can help support your families college dreams by providing the tools they need to start saving smarter. 

I know the hardest part about starting to save is, well, starting. To help kick start savings, your families may also be eligible to participate in the Matching Grant Program which offers a dollar-for-dollar match in contributions of up to $200. Plus, families who establish monthly recurring contributions of $25 or more when opening a new account will receive another $25!

It's the perfect opportunity to help your families save for their child's higher education, which remains one of the single greatest factors in their future success and upward mobility.
