"When I learned about the GIFT Arkansas 529 Plan, my wife and I immediately set up accounts for our children. What a great resource that has been! It is easy and affordable, and the option for extended family members to contribute is a tremendous benefit." – Senator Johnny Key, Arkansas Department of Education Director, Little Rock, AR

"I can say from personal experience that the 529 College Investing Plan is a great deal. I opened an account for my granddaughter. It is not an overnight thing, but if you start young enough, then when college time comes, the money is there to go to college and graduate debt-free. It's just a fantastic deal!" – Jack Treat, Marshall, AR

"My wife and I started with Arkansas' 529 program soon after our first child was born. I originally invested in another state's 529, but rolled the assets over to Arkansas' 529 when it began offering Vanguard mutual funds. We now have two children and couldn't be happier with the program or its investment options. We also like the fact the program continues to innovate with services like Ugift while also maintaining excellent one-on-one customer support." – Todd Smith, Farmers Bank & Trust, Magnolia, AR

"The GIFT Arkansas 529 Plan has allowed us a real way of guaranteeing the most important "gift" we can give to our son; the financial means to support his access to a college education. The ease of setup, high quality management, remarkably low fees, and associated reward programs have allowed us to make the most of our contributions. GIFT Arkansas has removed all the complexities from the investment strategies and allowed us to focus on the pride of watching his college savings grow with him. More than that, GIFT Arkansas has been our partner in ensuring that we can keep a promise we, as parents, made when we were blessed with the birth of our son. Thanks to the GIFT Arkansas our son will have the opportunity to earn his college degree." – Chris Thomason, Chancellor, UACCH

"When my son was born I wanted to invest in a college savings plan that would allow me to help pay for my son's college. I wanted it to be secure but also allow me the flexibility to diversify my investments. I learned about Arkansas Gift 529 and this was the exact plan that I was looking for. The website is very account owner friendly and allows me to manage my account without any hassle. I have been an Arkansas Gift 529 account owner since 2005." – Dennis Forrest, Marion, AR

Please Note: Before investing in any 529 plan, you should consider whether your or the beneficiary's home state offers a 529 plan that provides its taxpayers with state tax or other benefits that are only available through investment in the home state's 529 plan. You should consult your financial, tax, or other advisor to learn more about how state-based benefits (or any limitations) would apply to your specific circumstances. You also may wish to contact directly your home state's 529 college savings plan(s), or any other 529 plan, to learn more about those plans' features, benefits, and limitations. Keep in mind that state-based benefits should be one of many appropriately weighted factors to be considered when making an investment decision.
