Money fuels kids’ potential, saving it should be easier. Introducing a new social savings app that makes putting money in your kids’ account as easy as tipping the barista. Parents, friends, and family can now tap savings to the kids they know and love, to help parents grow a larger fund for their kids.

“This social savings app allows me to save with a click of a button. I can also share Kai’s account with friends and family to help contribute to her college fund. Let’s get real: Toys are great but saving for her future is even more rewarding.” - Joy Green, mom and parenthood blogger

JOIN US ON OUR MISSION. Your use of Kidfund increases educational attainment and economic mobility for the next generation. Did you know that low-income kids with $500 or less in college savings are 4X more likely to graduate from college than those without savings? That manageable amount of money has an outsized impact. The funds shift kids’ mindsets, keeping them on track to a brighter future. So in addition to offering an app that helps parents build their own child’s fund, we’re making it easy for families to donate a percentage of their child’s Kidfund into college savings accounts for low-income kids. Together, we can change the way we save for the next generation. Join us today!

What's New

Version 1.6.2

Now see where your gifts are as they travel to your loved ones. You can see when gifts are still on the way, and when they’ve arrived. (Works for incoming & outgoing gifts.)
Also, the fund graph shows incoming gifts that haven't made it into your fund yet.

We’ve also made small improvements to Touch ID & Face ID, made getting support easier, made it easier to receive push notifications, and fixed a few bugs.

Customer Reviews

Beautiful, easy app for savings with an easy way to do good attached

AGP2016

This is an amazing way to both save money for my kids, share photos with family, and do some good for the world. Because I can set it up and forget about it, I feel like I can save without thinking. It is very cool looking and seems really secure. Definitely recommend to anyone who has or is about to have kids!

Do something else instead.

Lindseyjohnson

Essentially, it's like a savings bank account without all the nice perks the bank can offer. Money takes a couple days to even be available. No card. No ATM. Also, you cannot receive money through PayPal, and you also have no idea if the parent is pulling the money you deposited "for the kid" under their name and not the child's. It could essentially be like Mommy spending her kids gift cards on her morning coffees. The money given is associated with the parents social security #.

Developer Response

Hi Lindsey, so sorry you are not finding value in the service! Kidfund is a new product designed to boost kid's long-term savings for things like college, their first car, etc.
The account is in the parent's name because you must be over 18 to open an account, but more importantly, so that they can empower their networks to help grow their kid's savings. We believe parents will do that!

The features you mentioned - credit/debit, transfers - are coming soon! Please feel free to reach out to me personally at max@kidfund.us, I'd love to hear your thoughts.
