Student Debt

NC 529 Joins 27-State Initiative to Tackle Student Debt

States are spearheading the initiative to face student debt head on as they encourage families to begin saving for the next generation now by taking advantage of 529 plans across the nation. The College Foundation of North Carolina (CFNC) and NC 529 are proud to join this coalition to help set up future generations for success.

In an effort to bring further attention to the 529 plan, a national campaign of 27 states will launch this month.
