iShares’ 529 plan, based in Arkansas, has become one of the sponsors of the Little Rock Museum of Discovery, and to celebrate the partnership, iShares commissioned Cirque du Soleil, another organization it supports, to perform two acts at the museum on Dec. 10. In the spirit of the museum, the circus performers will discuss the science behind their acts.
“iShares is proud to be a sponsor of the Museum of Discovery,” said Stephen Jobe, director of 529 programs at iShares. “We have great respect for the museum’s commitment to creativity, innovation and education, and we recognize that its mission aligns perfectly with our own. We’re also proud to be the presenting sponsor of the U.S. touring shows of Cirque du Soleil, and it gives us great joy to have Cirque participate in the launch of our partnership with the Museum of Discovery.”
The iShares 529 plan is the only 529 with all exchange-traded funds as the underlying investments.
