Ways to Give
Cash Donations are available for immediate use by our Foundation.
Matching Gifts double the power of your personal giving. Check with your employer or other organizations with which you are affiliated as to whether they offer a matching gift program.
Stocks, Bonds and Mutual Funds may enable donors to contribute a larger gift with less cost.
Pledges provide a longer-term commitment over a designated period of time based on an agreed upon schedule.
Life Insurance policies provide a wonderful legacy to the College. Identify the Foundation as the beneficiary of your policy or designate us as the owner of a whole life policy.
Retirement Savings are a great way to maximize your legacy. Gifts during your lifetime can seamlessly be transferred once you have reached age 70½.
Gifts of Appreciated Real Estate can provide a charitable tax deduction and elimination of capital gains tax.
Legacy Giving: Legacy giving refers to the process of making a charitable gift of estate assets to the Foundation. A legacy gift requires consideration and planning in light of your overall estate plan. Legacy gifts are usually deferred. For example, a person could include a provision in his or her will to make a bequest to the Carroll Community College Foundation. Additional planned gift vehicles include life insurance policies, real property, appreciated securities, charitable remainder trusts, charitable lead trusts, and charitable gift annuities. Such gifts may offer alternatives and solutions to tax liabilities and may reduce probate fees. Because of the size and potential impact of such gifts, a donor should consult with his or her professional advisors before completing the process.
