STEP 2: Notify Family and Friends

Once you set up your profile, spread the word via Facebook, Twitter, or email. Birthdays, holidays, and other gift-giving occasions are also a great time to encourage friends and family to contribute to your child's educational savings plan with The Gift of Education.

STEP 3: Track Gifts and Watch Your Educational Savings Grow

The Gift of Education keeps a detailed history of all gifts (including names and totals). An automated email notification is sent to the account holder each time a gift is received. The account holder can easily send "thank you" emails to all contributors.
