Ways to Give
Donors can make cash contributions. Checks should be made payable to the Tri-County Technical College Foundation, Inc. Gift Giving Form
Non-cash gifts, such as equipment, books, and software, are also welcome. Please contact the Foundation Office to determine if your gift would be appropriate for the College. We will recognize the receipt of your gift; however, you will be responsible for verifying the value of your gift.
- Employer's Matching Gifts
You may be able to double, triple, or even quadruple your gift if your employer has a matching gift program. Check with your Human Resource Department for more information on this gift-giving possibility.
Stocks and bonds that have increased in value are excellent ways of giving. You receive a tax deduction based on the value of the securities at the time of the gift, and you do not have to pay capital gains.
- Real Estate
Appreciated property is a good way to make a gift because the value of the gift is deductible and your profit will not be taxable as a capital gain.
- Life Insurance
The cash surrender value of an existing life insurance policy is tax deductible. Or you may take out a new policy, and the premiums are tax deductible if the College is made the irrevocable owner and beneficiary. You may name the Tri-County Technical College Foundation the first, second, or last beneficiary of an insurance policy.
- Retirement Plans
You might consider naming the Tri-County Technical College Foundation the first, second, or last beneficiary of a retirement plan: 401-K plans, SEP's, KEOG's, IRA's, or tax-sheltered annuities. Or you might use a retirement plan to fund a charitable remainder trust.
- Trusts and Annuities
Cash, marketable securities, retirement plans, or real property may be used to establish a charitable trust or annuity from which you would receive income for life with the remaining assets going to the Tri-County Technical College Foundation upon your death or that of your heirs. Tax advantages are possible.
You might consider including the Tri-County Technical College Foundation as a recipient of a specific dollar amount or a percentage of your assets in your will or other estate planning instrument.
