If you wish to give a presentAnother option is for friends and family to register with a loyalty rebating program like Upromise. They can arrange for the rebates they earn to be automatically contributed to your child's 529 college savings plan. People are more likely to contribute to a child's college savings plan if they have a close personal connection with the child. Keep them up to date on the child's milestones, hobbies, honors and awards. Many schools are now providing password-protected "portfolio" web sites that showcase special projects completed by the child. Send a personalized handwritten thank you note when you receive a contribution to your child's college savings plan, the same as you would for a more traditional gift. (You do send thank you notes, don't you?) Sending a thank you encourages repeat gifts. If someone contributed to your child's college savings plan, invite them to the graduation party or reception when the child graduates from college.
please grace us with your presence.
There's no need for a trinket or a toy,
or other material gifts to our pride and joy.

by helping us send CHILD'S NAME to college.
