Give College Savings

Add college savings to your wish list with this unique service. Ugift® lets you invite family and friends to celebrate occasions with the most meaningful gift of all: money toward a college education.

Use Ugift for:

  • Birthdays
  • Religious celebrations
  • School milestones/Graduations
  • Holidays
  • Or any special occasion

It's Easy:

  1. Log in image to your SMART529 account
  2. Click on the Ugift® link in the left navigation bar
  3. Follow the step-by-step instructions

Fill in your celebration details and enter your invitee list and their email addresses. With the click of a button you can send out an invitation and a specially coded gift coupon via email. You can also print out coded Ugift® coupons to hand or mail out.

When family and friends mail back the gift coupon with a check (minimum of $25.00) a code on the coupon links it to your celebration, approximately five days after the celebration date the gift contribution is invested directly into your SMART529 account. We even send a "Thank You" email to your invitee to acknowledge receipt of the gift if the gift-giver's address was entered on the e-invitation.
