Our Mission

Did you know a child with any amount of college savings is 7-times more likely to attend college? That's why LEAF College Savings established a secure college savings gift card program to help families save for their children’s college education. Our team's core mission is to empower the over 70 million children in the U.S. with the opportunity to gain higher learning and participate in the American Dream.

Our Gift Card Program

LEAF Savings provides the perfect gift for babies, toddlers, and kids, whether it's for a baby shower or birthday event. Simply state the amount you would like to contribute, purchase the card, and send it to a loved one via email, mail, or printout. With Leaf College Savings gift cards, we re-imagine the traditional way people give the gift of college savings by making it simple, secure, and social. We believe that by using the time-tested gift card approach and our easy-to-use website as well as social connections, many more friends and family will contribute to a child’s college savings.

Your gift card purchases and redemptions are FDIC-insured and redeemed card funds can be transferred directly to any college savings 529 plan in the U.S. As a result, you truly have the assurance that your gift is going to a child's college savings. Even a small gift can really make a difference. Many college savings 529 plans now can be opened with as little as $25.00. So, for a parent who hasn’t yet opened a plan, your small gift can get them headed in the right direction.

Our Team

The founders have enjoyed working together prior to LEAF – most notably building the first e-commerce system approved for federal agency use by the U.S. Department of the Treasury. They also built a multi-language financial literacy portal used by State Treasurers today, and created the Scholars Club, southwest Florida's premier academic organization for minority and "at-risk" students which has successfully guided more than 100,000 participants to high school graduation over the past twenty-four years.
