The Lynwood Partners Educational Foundation (LPEF) in partnership with Lynwood Unified launched the College Promise Savings Plan to help families get a jump-start on the cost of their children’s post-secondary education by providing money for a college savings account.
Research shows that first-generation college-goers are more likely to enroll in college and graduate if they have a dedicated college savings account. It’s a strong motivating factor in academic success.
The Lynwood College Promise Savings Plan will be made available to qualifying families with incoming kindergarten students at the beginning of each school year. The goal is set Lynwood kindergarten students that qualify with a Scholarshare 529 account and provide a $25 contribution. This amount should be matched by ScholarShare 529, which will manage the account.
