Forecasting a Fifth Third Better® Future
Every parent wants their child to live a life filled with better opportunities. That’s why every year, we partner with a city to give all babies born on May 3 (5/3) the gift of $1,053 toward a 529 college savings plan.
This year, Fifth Third Bank is proud to partner with hospitals and families in Louisville and Charlotte to give these tiny babies a big head start.
Since our program started in 2017, we’ve given away $420,147 in college funding.
