Tips for College While Keeping Costs in Mind

As we head into the Holiday season, we will soon share the things that we are all grateful for (things we have received and the gifts we will soon give).  One of the things we have found is that often times people wish they put as much time, energy, and money into giving their children a financial boost for college. Some of our most successful clients have had parents, grandparents, and other family members wrap up a small gift for under the tree and have also included a monetary gift for that child’s college fund.  So, as you’re getting ready to go into this Holiday Season, we thought it might helpful for us to unwrap more about college funding.
