Gifting has
been paused

To our community,

Gifting has been temporarily paused so we can focus on relaunching with a bold new design. 

Since launch, Gifting has been a place where the most important people in your life come together to contribute towards a brighter future for your kids. Now, we want to take Gifting to the next level. Effortless invites, speedy contributions, and fewer taps to send a gift. A more delightful experience in every way.

To ensure a smooth transition for our customers, the balance within your child’s Gifting account will be automatically transferred back to your linked bank account and the ability to accept future gifts will remain paused until relaunch.

See you next summer,The UNest Team

Special Thanks

Gifting wouldn’t have been possible without our incredible customers.
Thank you for the continued support.
