Nothing has a bigger impact on the professional success and upward economic mobility of young people than a higher education. But, for many families, the dream of sending their children to college has climbed beyond reach as costs and student loan debt skyrocket. That’s why ScholarShare 529, California’s state-sponsored 529 college savings plan, is offering eligible families a matching grant to help kickstart the college planning process.
