The Story

Mission

The 1:1 Fund supports the college dreams of low-income children by ensuring that those dreams are matched with savings in the bank. We make it easy for donors, large and small, to help kids save for college by matching their contributions in special children’s savings accounts. These accounts help low-income families save for college while giving them the confidence that post-secondary education is a real and attainable goal.

 

History

The 1:1 Fund was conceived and capitalized by the Corporation for Enterprise Development (CFED), a national nonprofit based in Washington, DC, that empowers low- and moderate-income households to build and preserve assets by advancing policies and programs that help them buy a home, pursue higher education, start a business and save for the future.
