Supplement to Ivy InvestEd 529 Plan Program Overview Dated September 2021

Plan Conversion:

On March 8, 2022, the Arizona State Treasurer’s Office, and the Arizona State Board of Investment, issued a press release notifying interested parties that it had approved Ascensus College Savings Recordkeeping Services, LLC (“Ascensus”) to serve as the new Program Manager and Recordkeeper for the AZ 529 Advisor Sold Plan (the “Plan”), Goldman Sachs Asset Management, L.P. (“GSAM”) to serve as the Investment Manager and Goldman Sachs & Co. LLC (“GSCO”) to serve as Distributor of the Plan. This conversion (the “Conversion”) is scheduled to occur beginning on or about June 10, 2022 (the “Conversion Date”). On or immediately following the Conversion Date, the Ivy InvestEd 529 Plan (“Ivy 529 Plan”) will cease operations and Ivy Distributors, Inc. (“IDI”), the current Program Manager of the Ivy 529 Plan, will cease to serve in that capacity and will transfer all Ivy 529 Plan records and assets to Ascensus. At this time the Plan will be rebranded as The Goldman Sachs 529 Plan.

As a result of the anticipated Conversion, the investment options described in your Account Owner Agreement (the InvestEd Portfolios Age-Based Options, the InvestEd Portfolios Static Options, and the Individual Portfolios, together the “Portfolios”), will be closed to new investors at the close of business on June 6, 2022, and all sales efforts will cease. In addition, the final monthly exchange for account holders participating in the Age-Based Options will also occur on June 6, 2022.

Blackout Period:

In order to facilitate an orderly transfer of assets, records and management responsibilities to Ascensus, on Wednesday, June 8, 2022, after the close of the New York Stock Exchange (“NYSE”), the Plan will experience a “blackout period” during which time no transactions will take place. During this time, you will be unable to open or close a Plan account, change your investment options, deposit money into a Plan account (including any recurring contributions), request or receive a withdrawal, update your account information, or effectuate any other Plan transaction. Any transaction requests that the Plan receives in good order after the close of the NYSE on June 8, 2022, will be processed as soon as administratively reasonable on or after June 13, 2022.

Out-of-Market Period:

The Age-Based and Static Option Portfolios will be fully converted to cash after the close of business on June 1, 2022, in advance of the Conversion. As a result, these assets will be out of the market, and you will not receive the benefit of any potential market appreciation, from June 2, 2022, through the Conversion Date. Following the successful completion of the Conversion, these assets will be re-invested in the new investment options offered within The Goldman Sachs 529 Plan and back in the market on June 13, 2022.

Additional information about these changes, including information about the fees and expenses, and the investment selections available through the Plan, will be sent to Plan participants by GSCO closer to the time of the Conversion. GSCO will also provide you with additional information regarding the limitations or restrictions on transactions and other-related activity under the Plan in advance of the Conversion.

You should contact The Goldman Sachs 529 Plan (; 888-462-6209) for additional details and/or questions regarding the Plan following the Conversion.

This Supplement is dated May 2, 2022.
