Savingforcollege.com Covers College Savings Month Promotions from Across the Country

Sep 20 2013, 4:00am CDT | by PR.com

September is a month widely recognized as College Savings Month, and is used by many states as a time to offer giveaways and host educational events to increase awareness and participation in their 529 college savings programs.

Pittsford, NY, September 20, 2013 --(PR.com)-- In recognition of September being designated as “College Savings Month,” Savingforcollege.com is helping to increase 529 plan awareness by compiling details of the various contests, sweepstakes and events held by states and their college-savings plans throughout the month. As the country's leading independent authority on 529 plans, Savingforcollege.com is also hosting several different opportunities to help visitors to learn more about 529 plans and other ways to save for college.

The listing of promotional events is freely accessible on the Savingforcollege.com web site. Many of the events are sweepstakes that offer substantial 529 plan contributions as prizes. Some states are holding awareness events at public venues, such as museums and zoos, to raise interest in their 529 program.

Savingforcollege.com is adding to the activities by hosting a live “Q&A” style webinar with Savingforcollege.com founder Joe Hurley to answer questions about 529 plans, and is offering free electronic downloads of Savingforcollege.com's Family Guide to College Savings. Visitors can find out more about these events by visiting the College Savings Month Page.

“The states along with their investment managers and distributors are offering some terrific College Savings Month promotions,” said Marie Osypian, Chief Operating Officer of Saving for College LLC. “It all helps drive awareness, and we think ours will help answer a lot of questions about 529 plans and encourage people to start saving early.”

In addition, Savingforcollege.com is hosting a sweepstakes from September through December to give away $5,000 towards the winner’s college savings fund. All that is required for entry is submission of the registration form; however, additional entries can be earned by completing other actions, such as liking Savingforcollege.com on Facebook or using the World’s Simplest College Savings Calculator. Entries will be accepted until December 31, 2013, and the drawing will take place in January 2014.
