College Savings Plan

It's never too early to think about your child's college savings plan.

St. Luke's Hospital is a participating hospital in the Baby 529 College Savings Giveaway. This is a new program developed by State Treasurer Michael L. Fitzgerald aimed at helping Iowa's youngest residents and their families save for college.

Baby 529 College Savings Giveaway is an ongoing program that will award one $1,000 College Savings Iowa account to a baby, selected at random, from all registered babies born in participating Iowa hospitals on a monthly basis.

Parents can register their baby online for the Baby 529 College Savings Giveaway online. Every family who registers to participate will also receive a small "welcome home" gift, courtesy of Fitzgerald and College Savings Iowa.

College Savings Iowa is a state-sponsored 529 plan designed to give families a tax-advantaged way to save money for college. For more information, call 1-888-672-9116 or visit their website.
