We know coming up with how to ask friends and family to help out with your college savings can be hard. Here are a couple of examples from parents who shared their child's profile to grow their college savings.
One very easy way to reach friends and family is via email. With GradSave we make it easy to share your child's profile via email. You can import your contacts and share your profile right from GradSave! Here's an example of an email a parent used to get help winning the $1,000 College Savings Challenge.
Hello [TONAME], I wanted to let you guys know that we set up a college fund for [CHILDNAME] at GradSave. Its basically a new way to share that link to social networks and makes it easier for relatives and friends to give [CHILDNAME] the gift of a future. I am also in a contest this month to be 1 of 10 families that can earn an extra $100 from GradSave. If you can contribute, even if its only $25, anything will help to reach the $1,000 challenge goal. Plus its for [CHILDNAME]! Thank you Love [FROMNAME] Click link below to contribute: [INSERT YOUR LINK HERE]
