A survey by Fidelity of parents who are already saving for college for their children found that 60 percent have a goal of saving more in 2014 than they did in 2013. Including those parents, 88 percent said that they plan to save at least as much as they did in 2013. Of the majority of such parents who have a specific target for savings, the average is $405 per month.
