Ways to Make A Difference Today
CASH AND GIFT PLEDGE
A cash gift is the simplest and quickest way to support UCC and has an immediate impact on students’ lives and UCC programs. Gifts can be made as one-time gifts or as monthly, quarterly, or annual contributions.
Employers (or a spouse's employer) may match your donations to qualified nonprofit organizations, such as the Umpqua Community College Foundation. Some employers even double or triple employee gifts.
STOCKS AND BONDS
One of the most beneficial ways to make a gift to UCC is to donate securities,including stocks, bonds, or mutual fund shares. These gifts entitle you to an immediate income tax deduction.
You can give private, commercial, or agricultural property to the Umpqua Community College Foundation. We prefer that you contact us during the early stages of your planning so we can jointly decide the best use of the property by the Foundation.
The Foundation accepts equipment that can be of use by the College or quickly sold. It is best to contact the Foundation Office to discuss potential equipment before making such a gift. You must obtain an appraisal for equipment contributions valued at more than $5,000.
Works of art, books, vehicles, etc., are considered gifts of personal property. Your deduction will depend on the appraised value and how the gift will be used by the Foundation or the College.
Ways to Give In The Future
Your will can include gifts in the form of the following:
- Cash, stocks, bonds, real estate, or personal property
- A specified percentage of your estate
- The balance of your estate after family members have been taken care of
Be sure to work closely with your attorney if you want the UCC Foundation to be the recipient of a future gift.
Your life insurance agent can discuss with you the types of insurance gifts you can make. Insurance gifts can benefit you and UCC in many ways. You can make a substantial gift with modest premium payments, or it's a good use of paid-up policies that are no longer needed for family members. You may also name Umpqua Community College Foundation as a beneficiary of a portion of your life insurance policy.
