You asked: "Is there a way Grandma can contribute to her grandkids(2)education or lifestyle that can benefit her and the kids now instead of an overtaxed semi-windfall later??"

You bet! Have Grandma write a check out to the school directly! This way she'll help finance your daughter's education, avoid the "gift" limitations, and also avoid mucking up any financial aid you might otherwise be eligible to receive. This assistance from grandparents (or any others) also works for college expenses as well.

Good luck & best wishes, PP

p.s. I like your nickname!!!
