Children from low-income households with savings for college of just $1-499 are three times more likely to go to college and four times more likely to graduate.
Semillitas (formerly Santa Cruz SEEDS) is here to help you get an early start in saving for your child's future.
All newborns born after December 31, 2020 to Santa Cruz County parents will automatically receive a gift of up to $50* towards their college or vocational education expenses.
The savings built up in this account can later be used for your child to go to college or vocational education programs. As your child grows, so will the savings account!
Together we can help your children reach their educational dreams
*Actual gift amount is based on household income and available funding
