Ohio’s 529 Plan and Cincinnati Red Sweepstakes Winners Announced

Ohio’s 529 Plan, CollegeAdvantage, is pleased to partner with the Cincinnati Reds for 2017, our fourth season bringing college savings to Great American Ball Park! Ohio’s 529 Plan wants everyone to know that saving for college is doable, especially with all the tax advantages found in a 529 college savings plan. Additionally, the earlier you start saving for your child’s future college costs, the more time your 529 account can grow from these benefits and the power of compound interest. In order to get the word out, Ohio’s 529 Plan has connected with the Reds to encourage saving for college.
