BE a CHILD'S CHAMPION

You can provide encouragement by sending a note or saying a kind word to a child, telling that child that you see big plans and a bright future for him or her. Please help by spreading the word about being a champion. You can also become a champion by investing $5.00 or more in a child's college savings account. 

 

All eligible youth who raise and deposit $25 from their champions during Champions period will receive a community match of $25, deposited into their CollegeChoice 529 Direct Account after the 1st of the year. There are two ways to give: online or a personal check.
