Accounts opened for an Oregon baby during Jan-March 2017 to receive a $25 matching contribution

Jan 04, 2017

SALEM, Ore. — The Oregon College Savings Plan is ringing in 2017 with a special gift for new Oregon babies. The Baby Grad promotion provides a $25 matching contribution to any Oregon College Savings Account opened on behalf of a new Oregon baby during the first three months of 2017.

Any adult who opens and funds an Oregon College Savings Plan account on behalf of a new Oregon baby is eligible for the $25 match. A new Oregon baby is defined as any person living in Oregon who was born in the 12 months prior to the account being opened. The minimum funding requirement is $25 and there is a limit of one match per baby.

“Our Baby Grad Promotion gives families an excellent incentive to start saving for their child’s education early,” said Michael Parker, executive director of the Oregon College Savings Plan. “Regularly scheduled contributions can add up over time, so the earlier a family starts saving, the more time their investment has to grow.”

At the end of the three-month promotion period, any qualifying accounts will receive the $25 contribution. Matches are expected to be made during April 2017, and will be confirmed as a contribution in the account. Families can learn more, view the official rules and open an account at OregonCollegeSavings.com/BabyGrad or call 866-772-8464 (void where prohibited).
