Who we are and how it all got strated
Message from the CEO
Thank you for visiting our site! GradSave is an online college savings registry that helps parents, family and friends save for a child’s future education. GradSave makes it easy for you, your family and friends to give the lasting gift of an education in lieu of traditional gifts at events such as birthdays, Christmas or other holidays.

How GradSave Got Started
GradSave was inspired by Irma Grondin, a successful corporate attorney at a global law firm and mom when she realized that she didn’t want any more “stuff” for her newborn daughter. Instead, she thought, “why not have our family and friends share in our child’s special occasion by giving them a gift that would last a lifetime. Even a $10 gift will grow to so much more when it’s time to go to college.”
And GradSave was born.
GradSave now helps thousands of parents nationwide save early and save easily!
