WHY:

According to “How America Saves for College 2015,” a study by Sallie Mae and Ipsos, the overwhelming majority of families agree college is an important and worthwhile investment, yet fewer than half are saving for college. Many families are apprehensive and overwhelmed when it comes to saving for college, and unclear on how to get started. The same study also found, however, that families who set a goal are more motivated and more likely to put money aside to meet that goal.
