A Promise Fund is a long-term savings account that can be used toward college or trade school expenses. Each, and every student in Sanilac County will be automatically given a Promise Fund when they enroll in kindergarten. They don’t have to sign any papers, it’s automatically done and it’s FREE! Each Promise Fund will be opened with a gifted amount of money through the Community Foundation and it’s partners. Over time, the balance of the fund grows through private deposits, additional savings matches, and various incentives.
When you give a child a Promise Fund, you are providing hope and support at the community level. You create an environment where college and post-secondary education are an option for everyone, it becomes ingrained in the culture. You inspire our next generation to do great things in the world they’ve been given.
And all it required, was a Promise.
- INCREASE high school and college graduation rates.
- INSPIRE a county wide college going culture.
- SUPPORT families in their college savings efforts.
- INVEST in Sanilac County’s future.
