Invite family and friends to help.

Ugift®  Give College Savings

Ugift is an easy, free-to-use service that lets family and friends make the meaningful gift of money into your HI529 account. Saving for college can take a village, and Ugift makes it easy to get help from your network of family and friends. Instead of giving toys, clothes or other traditional gifts that a child will outgrow, gift givers get the satisfaction of knowing that their generosity can make a lasting impression.

  • Hassle-free: Gift contributions can be made online or by check. The contributions are coded to go into your HI529 account, so there's no extra paperwork for you.
  • Secure: Unlike many other gifting programs, gift givers don't have to join, register or pay a service fee.
  • Popular: Thousands of families in Hawaii have already received over $15 million in gift contributions through Ugift.

How does Ugift work?

After you open a HI529 account, you will be given a unique Ugift code specific to your account's beneficiary. You can then share your Ugift code with family and friends. 

You can share your code any way you want:

  • Log in to your account to take advantage of Ugift's email, Facebook, and Twitter invitation features
  • Telling family and friends by word of mouth 
  • Include HI529's printable Ugift coupons in mailed invitations
  • You could even find a way to reach beyond your own personal network and harness the power of crowdsourcing

Your invitation can be tied to a specific occasion, or just a general appeal for help reaching your higher education goals. Need ideas? Find them at

Once your family and friends have your Ugift code in hand, they can use it to make their gift contribution at whenever they want. The code is valid for the life of your account, but you can opt-out of Ugift at any time.
