Contribute Today!

Make contributions when you can, in whatever amount you are able. After you make your first contribution of $25, there is no minimum contribution amount.
Contributions can be at an amount that works for you- every bit counts.

Are you a Maine resident? Add to your NextGen 529 account – you may be able to take advantage of grants for Maine Residents.

If you have a Select Series account, your financial advisor can also help you make contributions. Select Series account owners who receive their statements from Vestwell can also find forms on Vestwell’s NextGen 529 forms web page. Select Series account owners who receive account statements from Merrill can obtain forms from their financial advisor and use the MyMerrill® online platform and mobile app.
