Give smart


Is there a special occasion coming up? Whether it’s a birthday, a holiday, or any other important event, consider celebrating by contributing to your child’s, grandchild’s, niece’s or nephew’s CollegeCounts 529 account. It’s the gift they’ll never outgrow. With CollegeCounts GiftED, our online gift-giving site, family and friends can give the perfect gift to a loved one—a college education. It’s quick, easy, and great for any special occasion.

As an existing account owner, you’ll find everything you need by logging into your account and selecting CollegeCounts GiftED for simple step-by-step instructions.

Not the account owner? If you would like to make a gift contribution and your loved one already has an account, simply ask the account owner to send you an email invitation through GiftED. Once you receive the email, you can follow the instructions provided to make an electronic contribution or mail a check.

Don’t have an account yet? If your loved ones don’t have an account with CollegeCounts yet, it only takes 15 minutes to open an account. Once the account is open, CollegeCounts and our GiftEd program make it easy to contribute for any occasion.
