If your child dreams of attending college, Dollars for College can help them get there, giving you a safe, easy and affordable way to open a children’s savings account for college.
Through Dollars for College, United Way of Metropolitan Dallas and our partners offer a simple way to save for your child to go to college.
Opening a college savings account for your child can have a huge impact: With $500 saved, your child is three times more likely to attend college and four times for likely to graduate. Completing college can set a child up for a good-paying job, career advancement and a lifetime of financial security.
