KIPP helps grow college funds

With her youngest about to start his senior year in high school, the 49-year-old is finally about to open her family's first college savings account. She plans to scrape together $20 a week, money that will be matched by an ambitious program being piloted by the KIPP charter school giant, the Corporation for Enterprise Development and the United Negro College Fund, now called UNCF.
