Asking For & Giving Gift Contributions

Whenever there’s a holiday, birthday or other special occasion, give a gift that grows with them, an opportunity that lasts a lifetime. Instead of the usual gift items, contribute to your loved one’s ScholarShare 529 account.

Attention:

As the result of recent enhancements to the gifting platform, any gifting codes obtained prior to January 17, 2020 will need to be replaced with a new Ugift code.

How to Ask for Gifts

With Ugift, you get a free, easy, secure way to ask friends and family for gift contributions.

  1. Once you've opened and set up online access for your ScholarShare 529 account, select the Ugift link from the "My Accounts" page.
  2. Once you are on the Ugift page, a unique Ugift code will be provided for each beneficiary.
  3. Friends and family can use your Ugift code at any time to easily make gift contributions at https://www.ugift529.com.
  4. You can share your Ugift code using Ugift's email, Facebook, Twitter, or printed party invitation inclusions. Another option for sharing is to print the Contribution Deposit slip and mail it.

Additional Information

Account owners will receive confirmation for contributions made via gift certificate, Ugift, check or one-time online contribution.


How to Give a Gift Contribution by Mail

  1. Download an Additional Contribution form.
  2. Ask the account owner for the account number you should use for your gift, and list it on the form.
