Education Funding

Paying for a college education is an expensive proposition, but not an impossible one.

Let us help.

It’s important to be thoughtful and strategic when it comes to financing a child’s or grandchild’s education. For the last 30 years, college tuition prices have outpaced the overall rate of inflation and families are often unprepared for the hefty price tag of continued education. Or worse, so overwhelmed by the intimidating price tag they take no action.

At Kensington Wealth Partners we’re here to partner alongside you to develop a plan that works for your family without breaking the bank. For example, a 529 College Savings Plan can provide you with a plan for a child’s college education funding, offering tax-advantaged savings, flexibility, control and professional investment management. We’ll work together to quantify the amount to capture, then identify efficient techniques to help make this goal toward reality.

Consider What You Need At Every Step

One of the most important decisions to consider in life is: "What do I want to be when I grow up?" The answer to this question may certainly change over time. Helping your child or grandchild uncover this answer can be one of your most valuable gifts. In addition, there are many ways to help financially support education along the way even before college. You will want to consider if you need to set aside funds for private schools (K-12) and other educational activities leading up to the college years.

It's also important to consider that college is not the best option for all. If your child or grandchild desires to focus on specific trades or technology in their career, technological institutes and trade schools may be a better and more affordable route.
