Your thoughtful financial planning is beneficial to you and your family and enables you to leave a lasting legacy through York County Community College. Planned gifts can take many forms. We look forward to helping you explore your options as you consider making a long-lasting gift to us. If you have any questions, please call us at (207) 216-4311. Planned Giving opportunities include the following:
- Wills and Bequests - York County Community College's purpose is to inspire and empower our students and communities to thrive. You can establish your legacy by supporting our efforts through your estate plan or will. By including us in your will, you can specify that some or all of your assets be given to us after your lifetime. When that time comes, the asset/assets you specify will pass to us, and your estate can take a charitable deduction for the amount of your bequest, reducing the estate taxes payable. If you do include York County Community College Foundation in your will, please inform us so we can thank you appropriately for your commitment.
- Beneficiary Designations - Name York County Community College Foundation as a beneficiary in your life insurance policy and/or retirement accounts. This is a simple way to give that provides you with tax advantages as well.
- Trusts - A trust can help you manage your assets prudently and flexibly. It allows you to design a financial plan that meets your current needs and the needs of beneficiaries who survive you. A Charitable Remainder Trust (CRT) is a gift arrangement that allows you to retain an income for yourself, your spouse, and/or others while making a generous gift to York County Community College Foundation. As a charitable remainder trust donor, you irrevocably transfer assets, usually cash or securities, to a trustee of your choice (for example, a bank trust company)
