What's a fun activity to help both you and your child dream about the future? Try stopping by the U.Fund Dreams Tour tent at a community event near you. The U.Fund Dreams Tour provides props and prompting to encourage your child to imagine a future career, while informative materials and conversations with Fidelity representatives can help you strategize your college savings. It's an event for the whole family, and you'll see it popping up again on our events calendar in the spring.

We have partners across Massachusetts that help us promote the U.Fund Dreams Tour, and their blog posts also provide great tips and advice on parenting, finances, and other helpful lifestyle topics. We've listed below a re-cap of published posts from this year. Click on the links below to gain insight into affordable family activities, back-to-school savings, and more.
