An education is one of life’s most precious gifts.
Every occasion is the right time to give a gift of education. It's the gift that grows with time and one they'll never outgrow.
Ugift®1, a free online gifting service
This convenient service makes it easy for friends and family to contribute to a NEST account. The account owner will let you know the unique Ugift code assigned to the child’s account. You won't need to know the account number. Then, you can quickly and easily make contributions using electronic transfer from your bank account or sending in a check by mail. Unlike many other gifting programs, gift givers don't have to join, register or pay a service fee.

Here's how it works:
The account owner securely logs into their account, selects Ugift and requests a unique Ugift code specific to each child’s account.
You will receive the unique code(s) from the account owner — by email, over the phone, in person, on social networks, printed invitations — any way!
Visit Ugift529.com, enter the unique code and make your gift contribution either securely from your bank account or by mailing a check.
Download a gift contribution certificate to give to the child.
Within five business days after the funds are received, the money will be invested in the child's account.
