VT 529 College Savings

Hooray, it's May! And May 29 is College Savings Day!


Celebrate with VSAC, and get ready for a full summer of fun!


CHAMP's Kids Club has partnered with VSAC for a summer-long effort to encourage

more families to begin to save for college. And - to start off the festivities - in honor of

National 529 Day this month (on May 29, get it?), during the entire month you can

enter a statewide drawing to win a $529 deposit in a Vermont 529 college savings



What is VHEIP?

VSAC administers Vermont's official 529 college savings plan, the Vermont Higher Education Investment Plan (that's VHEIP!). It's the only college savings plan that provides a that provides a tax credit to Vermont taxpayers of 10 percent of the first $2,500 contributed per beneficiary, per year, for higher education.


Enter to win $529 in college savings during May!


During the entire month of May, any Vermont resident or Vermont 529 account owner can enter to win $529 in a VHEIP college savings account, as part of our state's celebration of National 529 Day. Also, through an annual partnership with the Vermont Association of Hospitals and Health Systems, every baby born on May 29, 2018, will receive $100 in a VHEIP account.

By opening a college savings account - even with just $25 to start - you'll be creating opportunities for your child's future. All Vermonters will need some form of education or training after high school to be qualified for Vermont's future jobs. Research shows that students from families who save even small amounts (less than $500!) for education are three times more likely to go on to and complete college or other training after high school.


Come to the ballpark on CHAMP's Kids Club nights …
and get a chance at cash for college!
All summer long kids can get cash - future college cash, that is! 


First Pitch for Cash: At every home game, the amount of the speed of the first pitch will be awarded to one lucky kid and go into a VHEIP account for college savings. So, a first pitch of a speedy 100 mph = $100 in a VHEIP account! 

Drawings at every Kids Club game! Every parent can enter for a chance to win a $100 VHEIP account to be announced on game night! 


There are two "Outstanding Students" nights at Centennial Field, too. Students nominated as part of the Lake Monsters Outstanding Student Program should make sure to come out to the park and enter the drawing for a $100 VHEIP account.
