Ways to raise money for college - So once you've paid the first ,000 for tuition (to make sure you qualify for the federal tax credit), cycle the money you're planning to send the college for tuition, fees, room, or board into your 529, wait for the check to clear, then use the 529 to pay your remaining college bills. If you haven't saved a penny for college, don't qualify for a single scholarship, and have too much month left at the end of your paycheck, college finance experts say you can probably scrape together at least ,500 for next year's tuition bills from the five following resources.

Student can do as many campaigns as he or she wishes, and regardless if the goal is reached, the student gets all the money raised sent to the school (unlike kickstarter and other similar sites, where it's all or nothing at all).
