Estate/Planned Gifts

Planned giving enables a donor to arrange charitable contributions in a manner that maximizes his or her personal objectives while minimizing tax costs. In particular, it can reduce or eliminate estate and gift taxes. Charitable giving can be a part of prudent estate planning, involving a number of tools that result in a larger inheritance for heirs. MCCC Planned Giving Campaign

An estate planner can recommend planned gifts to the MCCC Foundation, which welcomes charitable trusts; outright gifts of securities, real estate and tangible personal property (jewelry, paintings, etc.); and bequests.

On behalf of Mercer County Community College, the MCCC Foundation offers a variety of giving opportunities in support of facilities, scholarships/grants, specific department/division projects, and unrestricted resources to foster growth and excellence.

    Designated Giving: Contributions made for a specific purpose are placed in restricted fund accounts and used only for that purpose. Minimum amounts of $100 are required to establish and award a designated scholarship in any academic year. In the case where funds are donated and the amount exceeds the desired purpose for any given year, the remaining funds earn interest. Designated scholarships are many times created to honor someone, memorialize a special person, or provide support for students preparing for a certain career. Unrestricted Giving: Contributions made to the MCCC Foundation for general, unspecified purposes are classified as unrestricted giving. These gifts are used to address important needs of the college, its programs and its students. Unrestricted donations for scholarships become part of the General Scholarship Fund which provides awards to students based on financial need. Priority areas for awarding General Scholarships are identified each year by the MCCC Financial Aid Office and are adopted each year through voting action by the MCCC Foundation. All General Fund Scholarships are awarded in the academic year the donation is received.
