Ways to Give
Through a planned gift, you or your family can create a meaningful, everlasting legacy for yourselves and future generations of SPSCC students. A Planned Giving Letter of Intent may be submitted to the Foundation.
A legacy gift is a charitable donation to the college from your estate assets. Often received after one's lifetime, these gifts are referred to as deferred or planned gifts. A legacy gift allows you to control the use of your gift to benefit your own financial future and take advantage of tax benefits. A legacy gift can include cash, bequests, trusts, stock, life insurance, annuities, and more.
The benefits of planned giving include:
- Federal income tax charitable deductions
- Reduced and deferred capital gains taxes on appreciated property
- Reduction of your taxable estate, and/or
- Enhanced income from periodic cash distributions
Make a non-monetary contribution to a program on behalf or your business or as an individual. Gifts-in-kind are gifts of tangible personal property such as equipment, materials, company products, or inventory. Through gifts-in-kind, supporters help the college strengthen programs and improve facilities to provide the best possible educational experience to our students.
While in-kind donations are often received from businesses and corporations, individual donors also contribute many types of in-kind gifts. Contact the Foundation to discuss a possible gift.
State employees and retirees can give directly via payroll contribution. The Combined Fund Drive (CFD) is Washington State's workplace giving program for active and retired public employees. State and higher education employees are invited to give to the charity of their choice through payroll contribution and agency fundraising events. Check with your Human Resources Department for details.
SPSCC employees, see Campus Giving or contact the Human Resources Office.
