Now, parents, family, and friends can collectively invest in the kids they love, even before birth.
With EarlyBird, family and friends can gift investments to your baby and add a special video or photo that you’ll have as a keepsake forever.
After your baby is born, you’ll be able to add financial gifts to a custodial investment account that will grow up with them.
Capture your little one’s story, and share their most meaningful moments with everyone who loves them.
"If you're having a child now, this should be the first thing you set up. It could help them get their first apartment, or even with a down payment on a house one day. Smart parents need EarlyBird."
"This gift will serve as a tool to help explain the magic of compounding that has served investors to achieve prosperity."
“My wife and I have had to make our way through some really hefty student loans. We’ve learned the value of time when it comes to investments the hard way. Thank you for helping us get our son off to a strong start.”
- Steve S.
"This is life changing, not only for myself but for my children."
- K Suz
We’ve made it easy! After opening your baby’s EarlyBird account, you’ll have a unique link to share with friends and family who want to contribute. You can add EarlyBird to your Babylist registry and include your EarlyBird link on party invitations, display a QR code at your baby shower, or simply email it to inquiring loved ones. We’ll take care of the rest 😊.
After your baby is born, you’ll be able to invest financial gifts in a custodial account known as an UGMA (Uniform Gifts to Minors Act). We love UGMA accounts because they allow for flexible use of funds (as opposed to 529 plans, which can only be used for education expenses, unless you’re willing to rack up adverse tax consequences).
We’ve set EarlyBird up so that your child can have a smart, simple, and modern portfolio. That means the option to invest in ETF-based portfolios and crypto, all tailored to you and your child’s goals, timeline, and risk tolerance.
We’re committed to providing you and your family with the highest levels of security. Our trusted partner and custodian Apex Clearing Corporation, a third-party SEC registered broker-dealer and member of FINRA and Securities Investor Protection Corporation (SIPC), holds all investment accounts. This means the investments in your account are protected up to $500,000 total.
We also use multi-factor authentication, automatic logouts, ID verification to prevent unauthorized access, and 256-bit SSL encryption to protect accounts.
In celebration of your growing family, your EarlyBird Baby Fund is free until your little one arrives and their gifts are invested.
After that, our pricing is simple. The subscription fee is $2.95/month for families with one child or $4.95/month for families with multiple children.
For family and friends who are sending gifts, there is a gift processing fee that is applied based on the gift value and payment method.
