“The task of having to pay for your child’s education can feel overwhelming and daunting for parents. All parents hope that their child will qualify for financial aid, grants, and receive scholarships, but parents know they need a back-up plan. The best back-up plan is to start saving as early as possible. Scholarshare offers their 529 plan, which allows you to save money with no maintenance fees and withdraw the money tax-free!” -Crystal Robinson, Education Trust Award project manager.
