Show kids they’re worth the investment
Kids who grow up with even a small college savings account are 3 times more likely to go to college and 4 times more likely to graduate. When you invest in a child’s future early on, they learn that college is possible and begin aspiring to attain a higher education.
Jobs in Texas that will require post-secondary education by 2020
DISD students that currently complete a post-secondary degree within 6 years of high school graduation

That’s why we’re investing in Dollars for College, a matched savings program that disrupts poverty by encouraging aspirations of earning a degree.
