Low and moderate income children with a college savings between $1-$499 are 3 times more likely to attend college and 4 times more likely to graduate college. Just the simple knowledge of knowing they have a college savings account provides children the belief and the ambition to not only attend college, but graduate!

child savings Since 2015 AHEAD has been providing financial education to children in grades 1st - 3rd throughout schools in Northern New Hampshire. With funding provided by the NH Charitable Foundation and Passumpsic Bank, AHEAD staff provide 6 weeks of financial lessons, as well as, the opportunity for each child to open their own custodial savings account. Through interactive games, stories and activities students learn valuable money skills such as; money recognition, budgeting, needs vs. wants, and the importance of savings. Students who chose to open a custodial savings account will receive an initial gift deposit of $25.00 curtesy of Passumpsic Savings Bank.  Students may also receive a dollar to dollar match on the first $50.00 of personal savings. Additional gift deposits may be earned by participating in additional family-evening workshops and programs.

1st -3rd grade students currently enrolled in following schools are eligible to enroll in the program.
Lakeway Elementary School – Littleton, NH
Bethlehem Elementary School – Bethlehem, NH
Whitefield Elementary School – Whitefield, NH
