College Fund

All of the money, time and effort we have put into the last few weeks getting Finola ready to leave for University has got me thinking about a college fund for Primo.

Is there a way to set up a 529 plan or an Education IRA for a foster child?  Or maybe even just a straight up savings account?


  1. You might want to check into what your state has to offer. I know that any child that spent time in foster care in Texas is eligible for a free college education.

  2. Cherubmamma is correct and it is a federal program. However, it only applies to foster children who do not return to live with the parents whom they were removed from. (I suppose to prevent a parent from placing their child in foster care in order to get free college?)
