Resources for K-12 Schools
As an academic leader in your community, you’re accustomed to helping families realize the importance of planning for their children’s future. We invite you to join more than 100 school districts, private schools, preschools, and parent-teacher organizations statewide that are partners with us to connect with Washington families.
WA529 provides two savings plan options to save money tax-free for eligible future education expenses, like tuition, fees, room & board, books, and supplies. By partnering with WA529, you can provide a valuable resource to your community that reinforces your commitment to helping provide opportunities for those in your classrooms. Here’s how you can help:
Invite a WA529 representative to your school or PTA/PTO meeting
WA529 representatives are available to come to community events and parent nights at your school, as well as PTA/PTO meetings. Several options are available, including college savings information seminars, presentations and workshops. Visit our Request a Speaker page for more information about bringing a WA529 representative to your school.
While COVID-19 restrictions have limited the number of in person visits, WA529 also offers virtual engagement opportunities.
