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.
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.
Your gifts sustain a tradition of generosity from one MCCC generation to the next. Please contact the Development Office to discuss your philanthropic interests.
