Ways to Give
Cash gifts make an immediate impact and enhance scholarship and program support. The College is especially grateful for unrestricted gifts because they allow flexibility in meeting needs not otherwise funded. Checks should be made payable to the Snead State Community College Foundation.
Planned gifts include gifts from wills, trusts, and life insurance. Through these deferred gifts, individuals can ensure the continued strength of Snead State Community College. Such gifts enable the College to make long-range plans in support of its academic mission and goals.
Many donations to the College qualify for a matching gift. Often corporations have matching gift programs for their employees and retirees. Details on corporate matching programs may be obtained from your company’s employee benefits office.
A commitment to the Snead State Community College Foundation may be paid over a period of one to three years. Periodic payments may be made in the form of cash or appreciated property, such as securities. Many people find that by spreading payments over a period of time, they can make a larger commitment. Simply complete a pledge card to indicate your preference for your gift.
