KESPT to promote the new enhancements in National College Savings Month with a series of financial workshops and events
KESPT’s addition of new enhancements in September comes in time for National College Savings Month. “Now is the perfect time for families to start a college savings account for their children,” Cunningham said. “The beginning of each school year is another year closer to the day your child leaves for college, and a KESPT account can help make that transition less stressful.” KESPT will celebrate National College Savings Month and the new plan enhancements with a series of family events and workshops.
Personal finance writer Nathan Dungan, author of Prodigal Sons and Material Girls: How Not to Be Your Child’s ATM, will be bringing his “Diapers, Daycare to Degree” presentation to Kentucky the week of September 22. Dungan will teach families how to talk with their children about money, set up an allowance plan and find ways to save more. Dungan will be at the Louisville Science Center on Tuesday, September 23, from 1 to 2 p.m. and at the Lexington Children’s Theatre on Wednesday, September 24, from 6 to 8 p.m. To learn more about Nathan Dungan or to RSVP for the event, please visit www.kysaves.com.
KESPT will also be sponsoring the Louisville Zoo’s Princesses and Pirates and the Royal Tea Party event, September 20 and 21 from 10:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. Children can meet their favorite storybook princesses and pirates at this fun event. Coupons for the event can be downloaded at www.kysaves.com.
