Promise Indiana DeKalb County
Bright futures begin with big dreams. Promise Indiana DeKalb County supports every student to pursue education beyond high school.
How it Works
Start a Savings Account
Promise Indiana DeKalb County makes it easy for families to start a CollegeChoice 529 account for future education. Community Foundation DeKalb County deposits the first $25 to kick-start savings for students in Pre-kindergarten through 12th grade at Country Meadow, McKenney-Harrison, Waterloo, J.R. Watson, Butler, Riverdale, J.E. Ober, St. Joseph Catholic, and Lakewood Park Elementary.
Discover College and Careers
Early experiences help students visualize their futures. At school, students learn about college and careers and they explore the campus of Ivy Tech Northeast. Faculty and students lead activities to build students' excitement for education beyond high school.
Ask Your Champions
Students benefit from having champions who encourage them. Champions can be neighbors, friends, grandparents, aunts, uncles, coaches, or teachers. Students ask their champions to add to their savings for education.
Earn a Community Match
Students who raise $25 from champions earn a $75 match from the community to help their savings grow.
