Asking For & Giving Gift Contributions

Whenever there’s a holiday, birthday, other special occasion, give a gift that grows with them, an opportunity that lasts a lifetime.

Instead of the usual gift items, contribute to your loved one’s MESP account. With the Michigan Education Savings Program (MESP), giving that gift is simple and straightforward.


How to Ask for Gifts

With Ugift, you get a free, easy, secure way to ask friends and family for gift contributions.

  1. After you have opened and set up online access for your MESP account, select the Ugift link from the ‘My Accounts’ page.
  2. Once you are on the Ugift page, a unique Ugift code will be provided for each account.
  3. Friends and family can use your Ugift code at any time to easily make gift contributions at Ugift529.com.
  4. You can share your Ugift code using Ugift’s email, Facebook, Twitter, or printed party invitation inclusions. Another option for sharing is to print the Additional Contribution Form and mail it.

Additional Information

Account owners will receive confirmation of any contributions made to their account.
