Give College Savings

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


Use Ugift for:

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


It's Easy:

  1. Log in 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. A "Thank You" email is also sent to your invitee to acknowledge receipt of the gift if the gift-giver's address was entered on the e-invitation.
