Why investment assets?

Many young people are locked out of owning investment assets until they reach financial stability at a much later age.

By gifting investment assets such as stocks and bitcoin (which tend to outperform cash over the long-term), we empower students to fund their dream or invest for their future.

Who should apply?

✅ High school seniors in the 2024 graduating class

✅ Students with a specific personal or community-focused dream.

✅ Students who are open to sharing their journey through video updates.

What types of dreams qualify for the Gifted Savings program?
We encourage dreams that are inspirational and genuinely meaningful to you. Your dream can be about improving your life, the lives of people around you, your community, or a cause you are passionate about. The key is to use your imagination for good and create a plan that we can help bring to life.When sharing your dream in the application, it’s important to be thoughtful and provide context for how this dream will make a positive impact. At Gifted Savings, we believe the most inspirational dreams are ones that positively impact not just ourselves, but others as well.

Example 1: 

“My dream is to start a mobile library where I can bring books to underserved neighborhoods in my area. I want to fill an old bus with books, sharing my love of reading with younger kids in the area and inspire a love of reading for kids who might not have access to books or have someone reading to them. To me, this project is about spreading joy, fostering education, and uniting communities through the power of books. 

Example 2: 

"My dream is to go to art school and become a professional artist, something no one in my family has ever had the chance to do. This dream is huge for me because it's not just about doing what I love; it's about showing my younger siblings that big dreams are possible, no matter where you start from. Becoming successful in art could help me support my family and give back to my mom, who has sacrificed so much for us and has worked hard so that I can pursue my dreams."
