By 2018, it is estimated that 63% of all job openings will demand a college education.1 Increasingly, companies seeking to relocate cite workforce education as a primary motivator. The only question is, how can we all help families afford higher education?

Here is what you can do:

  • Spread the word about the DC College Savings Plan. We have helpful resources available free of charge.
  • Offer DC College Savings Plan through payroll direct deposit at no extra cost.
  • Attend an upcoming DC College Savings Plan event to learn more. View the calendar to see events in your area, or have a DC College Savings Plan representative attend one of your events.
  • Have a 529 question? Schedule a virtual meeting with our 529 pro, David Rydzeski, for specific 529 and DC College Savings Plan questions.
