With this year’s introduction of Refund529 — allowing New York tax filers to split their state refunds toward a direct contribution in a 529 college savings account, an unprecedented opportunity for LMI families to save — supporting The Financial Clinic also means helping thousands of children begin the necessary savings for a college education.
On #529Day (5/29), we’ll be celebrating the families who took advantage of Refund529 already this year, but with your support, we can reach thousands more. Watch one such #SavingsSuperhero, Joanna’s, story below:
Help us meet our goal of raising $5,000 by 5/29! Together, we can empower as many as 5,000 future college graduates and their families in 2019.
Kids with as little as $1 – $499 in savings are 3x more likely to attend and 4x more likely to graduate college. Let’s make sure all New Yorkers have the tools to save for college, no matter their income, race, gender, or geographic location.
