Grandparents give big to grandkids' college funds
祖辈对于孙辈大学学费的巨大贡献

Even as they struggle to fund their own retirement dreams, many grandparents are putting tens of thousands of dollars toward helping their grandkids pay for college.
尽管很多老人家都还在为自己退休后的梦想奋力筹钱,但是老人们仍然愿意花上上万美元的巨资资助孙儿们支付大学学费。

A little more than half, or 53%, are already saving or planning to start saving for their grandchild's college education, according to a Fidelity survey of 1,001 respondents who have at least one grandchild 18 or younger.
根据富达集团对1001位家中有18岁或以下小孩的老人进行的调查显示,已经有53%的老人开始存钱或计划开始存钱,为孙儿们支付大学学费,这个比例超过了半数。

Of this group, the median contribution was $25,000 -- and 35% said they have given or expect to give $50,000 or more.
在参与调查的老人中,平均资助的学费高达25000美元。其中35%的老人资助了或将要资助5万美元或者更多。

At the same time, 47% of grandparents acknowledged that they are worried about being able to save enough for their own retirement.
同时,有47%的老人承认,他们对自己是否有足够的钱应付退休生活表示担忧。


"Of course [grandparents] need to be thinking about their own situation, but providing for their grandkids is an emotional topic -- they want to make sure [their grandchildren] are set up for success," said Keith Bernhardt, vice president of college planning at Fidelity.
富达集团分管大学计划的副主席基斯•伯哈特说道:“老年人的确需要考虑自己的生存状况,但是为孙辈提供学费资助是个情感问题,他们都希望确保自己的孙辈们走在通向成功的道路上。”
