Celebrate your child with a NextGen 529® Time Capsule Kit. It’s a gift that will last a lifetime.
NextGen just made it easier for you to help family and friends invest in your child’s future.
Get your child thinking about their future with one of our Time Capsule Kits. Whether you use it to celebrate a special birthday, to mark an educational milestone, or just for a fun Saturday afternoon activity, you’ll make a lasting memory and start an important conversation.
We’ve pulled together everything you need to create a time capsule for your child. The great part about this time capsule is that family and friends contribute to your child’s 529 account as well as write notes to your child’s future self. It’s a meaningful, creative, and fun way to remember today while saving for tomorrow.
You provide the box that will become the time capsule, and we’ll help with the rest. Simply choose 1 of 4 themes and download the kit. Use what you’d like and forget the rest.
A fun and customizable invitation to the party that you can send by email or print and mail.
A printable label you can tape to any box you wish to use for your child’s time capsule.
A printable message card that can be folded into an envelope for cash or checks and allows friends and family members to leave a message along with their contribution.
A thank you card that you can email or print and send to everyone who contributed.
If you decide to have a party, guests add the notes they’ve written to your child’s future self (along with anything else they want to include) to the time capsule. Before guests leave, seal the time capsule, and put it in a safe place until the day you’ve chosen to open it. That might be your child’s high school graduation, first day of college or trade school, or even their graduation from higher education. You choose!
