Our Promise to youth in Indiana.
ABOUT THE PROMISE
Promise Indiana is a Children's Savings Account (CSA) initiative with the goals of expanding access to 529 college savings accounts, making sure all youth have opportunities to build assets for their futures, and helping communities develop college-going culture.
HOW THE PROMISE ENGAGES FAMILIES, SCHOOLS, AND COMMUNITIES
Communities around our state launch their own "Promise" in order to equip young children and their families with the financial resources, college-bound identities, community support, and savings behaviors associated with positive educational outcomes. The design of Promise Indiana aligns the goal of increasing educational attainment around our state with implementation that remains rooted in each community’s particular needs, challenges, and strengths.
Each Promise community commits to making it easy for families to begin saving for post-secondary education, providing matching funds to encourage savings behavior and grow assets, and engaging local partners like schools and youth-serving organizations that can help shape the college-going identities of youth.
Promise Indiana has a dedicated team to support communities as they launch their local program and new counties are selected to launch the program each year through a competitive application process.
