“I never knew you could save like this, it’s so easy.” - Rebecca, mom in NYC
“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
“This app is awesome!!! I can’t believe it didn’t exist before. Takes the pain out of saving (even makes it fun!). Every parent should have one. Plus it’s well designed, easy to use, beautiful and works well. Really, really awesome. Thanks, Kidfund!” – AGP2016

JOIN US ON OUR MISSION. 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? In addition to helping parents build their own kids’ funds, we’ve made it easy for families to donate a percentage of their kids’ gifts to college savings accounts for low-income kids. Together, we can change the way we save for the next generation. Join us today!
Getting started with Kidfund is simpler than ever. We’ve totally revamped the way the app helps you get started, making it easier to understand what do to next. If you’re all set up and want to see it, share Kidfund with someone new and help them save for their kids!
We’ve also tidied up the memory bank and fixed a couple bugs.
Ratings and Reviews
App is clunky and needs a redesign!
Before I state my issues I would first like to say that I love the concept of the app. A way to save for your children’s future while being charitable at the same time. However the application itself needs to be reworked or redesigned. Most things don’t work properly like the passcode sign in or the photo memories, which seem to just post tons of duplicates. Your money seems to get placed in a weird state of limbo where it shows it’s not longer pending but isn’t in your account either which is kind of weird and concerning. The process of Withdrawing funds isn’t really made clear you’re just prompted to a screen with a number to call. The application seems glitchy most days and you have to click numerous times to enter certain menus. Idk I love the concept of the app and would love to be really long term with this but please for the love of god redesign this app in the near future or at least create a web version that doesn’t have all these issues please.
Thank you for reaching out to me over the phone and addressing my concerns. I will update my rating to 5 stars because of the great conversation we had that addressed all my issues.
First, thanks for supporting our mission! We're excited to keep improving & making the app everything you're looking for.
We definitely want to keep making processes clearer in the app. We'll make withdrawing money easier to understand (while still reminding you that leaving money in your kid's fund is the best way to grow a big fund!). And we're really excited for same-day transfers! But until they're made available to us, we'll make it clearer exactly what's happening to your money as it moves through the banking system.
Finally, we of course want a bug-free app. Any time you see anything that doesn't feel right, you can report it by simply shaking your phone. Those reports help our engineering team improve the app faster. (We coincidentally just fixed that image posting bug in the last app update, so updating your app should fix that already!)
If there's anything else I can help with, please feel free to reach out to me directly at email@example.com!
Easy and works!
I started using Kidfund for my two sons about 7 weeks ago. Getting set up was simple and straightforward. I’ve saved money for them without even thinking about it. Definitely recommend it!
Nice sense of community!
This has been a great way to encourage myself to put a little away every month. The best part is the "crowdfunding" aspect - it's nice having a single place to direct friends and family who are distant, but want to help out!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
