Happy 20 Years, Virginia529!

Happy 20 Years, Virginia529!

Twenty years ago, the first Virginia529 prePAID account was opened, and Virginia families were able to save and pay for their children’s higher education like never before.

In the following years, Virginia529 introduced more programs and options with the same goal in mind: make higher education more accessible and affordable to families.

Today, Virginia529 has helped more than 1.4 million families nationwide prepare for their educational futures, and we couldn’t be prouder. Thank you for trusting us with your hopes, dreams, and savings.

Now, you’re invited to celebrate with us!

To commemorate 20 years of saving, we’re giving away the gift of education: an eight-semester Virginia529 prePAID account. That’s four years of tuition and mandatory fees at a Virginia public college or university. We hope this gift makes a huge difference in the winning family’s future.
