For more information on the DC College Savings Plan, please call 800.987.4859 (800.368.2745 for non-District residents) or contact your financial advisor.  An investor should consider the investment objectives, risks, charges, and expenses of an investment carefully before investing.

The District of Columbia College Savings Trust Program Disclosure Booklet contains this and other information. Read it carefully before you invest or send money.

An investor should also consider, before investing, whether the investor's or designated beneficiary's home state offers any state tax or other benefits that are only available to residents of that state. An investment in another state’s 529 college savings plan may not offer comparable benefits.

The Government of the District of Columbia does not guarantee investments in the program. Investment involves risk, including possible loss of principal.
