Ways to Give

Making a charitable gift to the MCC Foundation is an important and personal decision. The satisfaction of giving comes from knowing that you are investing in the lives of individuals, as well as businesses and communities that benefit from an MCC education. The information provided in our giving options may be useful, but you should not consider it legal or tax advice. You should contact your attorney, tax advisor or accountant for details.

Other ways to give

The MCC Legacy Society

The lasting impact of bequests -- both large and small -- have helped shape MCC today. For many alumni and friends of MCC, a charitable bequest is the easiest and best way to make a gift to the College. By means of your will or other estate plan, you can name MCC as the beneficiary of a portion of your estate, or of particular assets in your estate. Many of the most powerful gifts with an enduring impact have been bequests.

There are many reasons to make a bequest. A bequest allows you to honor a loved one while providing critical support to the College through a scholarship fund, or another fund underwriting research and teaching.

Giving by bequest costs nothing now, yet it may give you a great deal of satisfaction to know that your future gift will live on.

Membership

The Legacy Society recognizes those donors who are honoring Metropolitan Community College in their final wishes. They have strong ties to the College and want their legacy to continue. Legacy Society members have an everlasting impact on students who attend MCC. There are no levels in the Legacy Society. Membership belongs to people who provide required documentation to the MCC Foundation of a planned gift, including:

  • Provision in their will or revocable trust
  • Life income gift (charitable gift annuity, charitable remainder trust or charitable lead trust)
  • Retirement plan
  • Life insurance policy beneficiary designation
  • Life estate gift (remainder interest in real property)

We can assist you with a customized proposal that looks at which planned gift best meets your philanthropic and financial goals. If you are planning to designate MCC in your will, our official bequest language is:

"I, [name], of [city, state, ZIP], give, devise and bequeath to the Metropolitan Community College Foundation, Federal Tax ID # 51-0181875, [written amount or percentage of the estate or description of property] for its unrestricted use and purpose."

Recognition is up to you whether you prefer publicity, invitations to events or wish to remain anonymous.
