Kindergarten to College (K2C) Program for SFUSD Students

Start saving now for your child’s college education by contributing to your child’s K2C account and earning incentives.

The San Francisco Kindergarten to College (K2C) Program is a college savings program for SFUSD students. It is a partnership of the San Francisco Mayor’s Office, the Office of the Treasurer, the Department of Children, Youth, & Their Families, and the San Francisco Unified School District.

Since the 2012–2013 school year, a K2C college savings account has been opened automatically for each SFUSD student entering kindergarten. The City and County of San Francisco starts each account with $50. Students and families can earn additional incentives by making deposits to the account.

There are new incentives as of November 1, 2017:

  • $10 Save Monthly Bonus: If you did not already earn the previous $100 Save Steady Incentive, then you will receive a $10 bonus in any month that you save at least $10, for up to six months.

  • $10 Save Now Bonus: If you have not previously contributed to your student's account, then you will receive a $10 bonus when you make your first contribution before December 31, 2017.

  • $20 K2C Account Registration Bonus: If you are a K2C account holder who has not yet registered on the K2C portal, then you will receive a $20 bonus when you register to view your student's account activity.

During the week after Thanksgiving, students with K2C accounts received a letter at school about the K2C program and these latest incentives. If your child started kindergarten in 2012–2013 or later, and you did not receive this letter, please contact K2C directly at
