Gift Contributions

Gift Contributions

Turn a Dream into a Degree®. Give the gift that last a lifetime - a gift of education. Whether you're the Account Owner asking for gifts for your children, or the Gift-Giver giving a gift to a college-bound child, you can make a difference.


Many of our Account Owners have family and friends (non-account owners) who have expressed a desire to contribute to their loved ones' NJBEST* accounts.

Introducing Spryng
Spryng is a personal crowdfunding tool designed exclusively for NJBEST account owners. It is the easy-to-use way for friends and family to make contributions into a 529 college savings plan and, best of all, it takes just three steps to get started.

Investors should carefully consider plan investment goals, risks, charges and expenses before investing. To obtain the Investor Handbook, which contains this and other information, call Franklin Templeton Distributors, Inc., the manager and underwriter for the plan, at (877) 4NJ-BEST. You should read the Investor Handbook carefully before investing and consider whether your or the beneficiary's home state offers any state tax or other state benefits such as financial aid, scholarship funds, and protection from creditors that are only available for investments in its qualified tuition program.
