Need help finding a 529 Plan?

We're pleased to make the 529 Savings & Selection Tool available to you.

529 Savings and Selection Tool

Our 529 Savings & Selection Tool will guide you through the 50 direct-sold 529 plans recommended a plan (and alternate plan) which you can open directly with the plan provider. SoFi does not offer its own plan. Once you've opened your plan, return to this Gift Card site with your plan name and account number to redeem your gift card into your 529 college savings plan account.

You'll need to create a SoFi account to use the 529 Savings & Selection Tool, which is separate from the LEAF account you'll create to use as part of the gift card process.
