About Virginia529 and Invest529 Accounts:

Virginia529 started in 1994 when the Virginia General Assembly authorized a program to help citizens save for the increasing costs of higher education.

One of the earliest 529 plans formed, the Virginia Higher Education Tuition and Trust Fund—which evolved into Virginia529—began offering a prepaid tuition plan in 1996. Over the next 20 years, one program expanded to more, to offer customers additional choices.

Now available nationwide with account owners in every state, Virginia529 is the largest 529 plan, managing more than $50 billion in assets.

Every day Virginia529 seeks ways to assist families through program enhancements, technology improvements, education, and scholarship.

The winner of the 8th Annual Tuition Raffle will receive an Invest529 Account valued at $50,000. There are no state residency or beneficiary age requirements for enrollment in an Invest529 Account. Money saved with Invest529 may be used for many types of qualified higher education expenses including tuition, fees, housing, meal plans, textbooks, computers and related equipment, required supplies, special needs services, and tuition at private or religious K-12 schools. For complete information regarding the eligibility and use of an Invest529 Account through Virginia529, please contact Virginia529 directly.
