Dear Save for College Program Family,

Through a partnership with your child’s school, your child is one of over 10,000 children across Western Queens who is enrolled in the Save for College Program. Over 95% of 1st, 2nd, and 3rd Graders in Western Queens have an NYC Scholarship Account with an initial deposit of $100. We are saving for college together! Students in the Save for College Program have already received over $1.6 million in scholarship rewards. We are working together with you, your school and members of your community to ensure that your child has assets for college and career training.

173 families have completed Building Blocks for their children since the start of September, earning over $11,000 for their NYC Scholarship Accounts- and there is still $991,191 left to be claimed!
