Learn to Plan for Your Kids’ College Costs

Planning for college can be intimidating, but it doesn’t have to be! The L.E. Phillips Memorial Public Library in Eau Claire presents “Planning for College: A Financial Strategies Workshop” on Monday, Nov. 18, from 6-7:30pm in the Eau Claire Room on the library’s lower level. Financial advisors Sara Cramer and Mike Kauls will share tips to make college more affordable.

This presentation introduces strategies on how parents of high school students can:

• Help provide education resources while preserving their retirement savings.

• Guide students toward making smart college selection decisions.

• Start students on the right foot by teaching wise money habits early.  

• Balance the weight of educational debt.

This program is co-sponsored by Thrivent Financial, and presented by Cramer, a financial advisor, and Kauls, a financial advisor and certified college planning advisor.
