The holidays are approaching, and many parents and grandparents are wracking their brains, trying to come up with a great gift for the children in their lives. You can give them another toy or a sweater, but what about something for their future? Giving the gift of a college education is something they won’t outgrow or break. A 529 gift card also shows kids that you’re focused on their future success.
During the holidays and on special occasions, it’s fun to spoil the children in our lives. Twenty-five dollars can buy a variety of gifts – balls, gift cards and games. As WFMY notes, it can also give the gift of education.
That’s because you can contribute to an NC 529 Account with as little as $25. Money saved in an NC 529 Account can be withdrawn to pay for qualified higher education expenses.
