There are many ways to give to the McCook College Foundation, and we will be happy to work with you in whatever way best meets the goals of your charitable giving plan.
Cash or check: The most popular and convenient way to give for an immediate impact.
Pledges: Larger gifts are sometimes made easier by spreading payments over a 3-5 year period.
Matching Gifts: Check to see if you or your spouse have an employer that matches employee donations to qualified non-profit organizations.
Stocks & Bonds: Securities that have appreciated in value offer tax advantages that make them highly attractive as charitable gifts.
Agricultural commodities: Donations of grains, livestock and other agriculturally related products will be gratefully accepted.
Bequests: Gifts of cash or property made through a will or living trust ensures a tradition of giving that will continue after the donor’s lifetime. The Foundation can be named as a beneficiary of an estate, as the recipient of a stated dollar amount or as a residual beneficiary.
Life Insurance: A policy that is no longer required for its original purpose may be transferred to the Foundation to directly benefit the College. New policies naming the Foundation as a beneficiary may also be considered as long term planned giving.
Remainder Trusts & Annuities: Both are income plans that allow the donor to make a gift while retaining the income for his or her lifetime.
Please note: Your attorney, certified public accountant or other qualified financial consultant can advise you as to the most beneficial giving plan to meet your philanthropic wishes. McCook College Foundation does not dispense legal or tax advice.
