Money Mornings: Planning for College

  • Ellwood Thompson's 4 North Thompson Street Richmond, VA, 23221 United States (map)

Parents all want their kids to go to college. But they also don't want to go broke.

Getting that diploma is expensive (with a price tag that keeps climbing), and it's confusing to navigate the sea of federal loans, institutional aid, and other financing options.

The best way to minimize this headache is to plan ahead.

Join us at the August edition of Money Mornings to hear tips from a financial planner and a Virginia529 college savings rep on planning and saving for college. Topics we'll be covering include:

  • Setting savings goals as a family
  • Understanding the basics of financial aid calculations
  • The nitty-gritty on how 529 college savings plans work

As always, the coffee will be hot and the pastries will be fresh. Come ready to learn and get your day started off right!


Money Mornings is a monthly breakfast program designed to provide our community with free education and a welcoming atmosphere to open the money conversation and learn how to live, spend, and invest intentionally. Come ready to learn, meet a few like-minded people, and enjoy free coffee and pastries!
