Kindergarten to College (K2C) Seed Accounts are opened and maintained by United Way California Capital Region (UWCCR) and the City of Sacramento. The K2C Seed Account will be maintained by UWCCR for the benefit of individual students enrolled in participating Sacramento area schools. The K2C Seed Account will receive any incentive funds from the K2C program and accrue interest based on ScholarShare’s Passive Age Based Portfolio. To earn the matching incentives, families must open their own Family-owned ScholarShare 529.
