To commemorate National 529 College Savings Day, College Savings Mississippi is teaming up with Mississippi hospitals to help two lucky newborns born on May 29 (5/29) go home with $529 already saved for their education.
College Savings Mississippi gives $529 MACS scholarships to the two babies born at or after and closest to 5:29 am and 5:29 pm at participating hospitals across the State. Last year, 19 hospitals participated and one baby from Greenville and one from Tupelo went home with MACS scholarships. All babies born on that day at participating hospitals also went home with an “I’m a 529 baby” bib, as well.
Hospitals interested in participating this year, should contact Natalie Morgan at College Savings Mississippi at 601-359-9272 by May 3.
Thanks to a change in federal tax law in December 2017, MACS is not just for college savings any more. It can also be used to help pay for tuition at private and religious K-12 schools. So, MACS is helping families save for their child’s education from start to finish!
