Santa Cruz SEEDS is here to help parents get an early start in saving for their child's future. The effort establishes a ScholarShare 529 savings account for every newborn in Live Oak and Watsonville. Administered by Santa Cruz Community Ventures, the funds may be used solely for college or vocational education expenses.
Studies have shown that these savings accounts significantly increase a child's college attendance and graduation rates. They also have a positive impact on early childhood development.
Thanks to the generosity of our partners, all donations go directly to Santa Cruz County children to use for their future education.
Together we can help our children reach their educational dreams!
