This Florida Prepaid College Plans post about the gift of education is sponsored by the Florida Prepaid College Board, through my role as a Believer Blogger. However, All thoughts and opinions are my own.

Days away from Christmas and there are still a ton of people who don’t have all their Christmas shopping done. Are you one of them? Just yesterday, I was asked what my kids would want for Christmas. While I can give them a long list of things they would want (and use for a short amount of time), I wish someone would give my kiddos what they need…the gift of education.

The kids are getting older and college will be here for them quicker than I’d like to think about. Having had to work full time, while attending school full time, to pay for college, I know how difficult that can be. Unfortunately, student loan debt is still a significant issue with the average student graduating with at least $29,000 in loans. I’d love for my kiddos to be able to focus on their college education without having to work full time or graduating with massive loan debt. Now that 2017 Florida Prepaid College Plans Open Enrollment has begun and Christmas is almost upon us, what better gift can you give a child than the gift of college — the gift that keeps on giving!

There is a Prepaid Plan for any budget. I’d like to highlight one in particular that is great for gifting, the 1-Year Florida University Plan. You can purchase one year, or 30 credit hours, at a time (starting at under $50 a month) according to your budget and timeline, without feeling the pressure of having to buy all four years at once. The plan also allows multiple purchasers to buy a plan for the same child. So now you can team up with other family members to help pay for your child’s higher education…see, it is great for gifting!!! Often times, the best gifts are the ones not found under the Christmas Tree.

At a time when so much in the world is uncertain, saving for college through Florida Prepaid College Plans is guaranteed and secure. It is certainly a way to ensure a child’s financial security. For more information or to get started, you can visit the Florida Prepaid Website.
