About NYC Kids RISE
NYC Kids RISE is a nonprofit organization working to expand economic opportunity and equity by providing families, schools, and communities with a way to work together to save for their children’s education. NYC Kids RISE manages the Save for College Program in partnership with the NYC Department of Education and the City of New York. The Save for College Program is a scholarship and savings program designed to make college more accessible and achievable for all NYC public school students, starting with all kindergartners in School District 30 in Queens—regardless of their family’s income or immigration status. By providing upfront scholarships to every student, tools and information for families to develop their own college savings plan, and a platform for communities to save together, the Save for College Program empowers families to begin saving and planning for college from their child’s very first days of school.
NYC Kids RISE launched the Save for College Program in School District 30 in Queens in Fall 2017, the first year of a three-cohort pilot that aims to enroll approximately 10,000 kindergartners. (School District 30 includes the neighborhoods of Astoria, Ditmars, East Elmhurst, Hunter’s Point, Jackson Heights, Long Island City, Sunnyside and Woodside.) Following this pilot, NYC Kids RISE hopes to expand the Save for College Program to all NYC public schools.
