Here’s how to ensure your generosity will never be forgotten. You may wish to honor the memory of a loved one—or secure lasting recognition of your own commitment to accessible quality education. Consider establishing in the name of your choosing a scholarship fund that will positively impact generations to come. Your donation will be a powerful source of pride. The permanence of an endowment provides a gift that keeps on giving—and a legacy long-living.
Both endowed and general scholarship fund support is important. An endowed scholarship can be initiated by an individual, group or business through a tax-deductible donation of $10,000. This gift will create a perpetual scholarship in the donor’s name or as a memorial to a loved one. Endowments may be built with annual gifts or by a one-time donation.
What better way to ensure the continued success of your industry or profession than to invest in the preparation of its future workforce? A Teaching Chair endowment does just that. It’s a great way for individuals or colleagues in a given career field to make an enduring contribution to its advancement.
A Distinguished Endowed Teaching Chair in the donor’s name may be established for a tax-deductible contribution of $100,000. The endowment may be used for teaching materials, teaching research, stipends to attract and retain outstanding faculty, or other programs which enhance teaching excellence.
Commemorative or memorial gifts of various amounts enable donors or their loved ones to have buildings, classrooms or other BCCC facilities named in their honor or memory. Members of the Foundation Planned Giving Advisory Committee will be available to assist you with an appropriate giving strategy, but always consult your financial or legal advisor.
Your decision to make a charitable gift to the Baltimore City Community College Foundation is an important and very personal decision.

Gifts of Cash
Making a donation of cash is as simple as writing a check or authorizing a charge on your credit card. From your standpoint, it's no fuss, no bother. Find out how the BCCC Foundation can put your contribution to work without delay.
Gifts of Securities
Stock that has increased in value is one of the most popular assets used for charitable giving, once it has been held for a minimum of a year. Making a gift of securities to us offers you the chance to help our organization while realizing many important benefits for yourself. Always remember not to sell the stock but to ask your broker to transfer the actual stock electronically to the BCCC Foundation.
Gifts of Closely Held Stock
A donation of your closely held stock can be a fine way for you to make a sizable charitable contribution while realizing valuable tax benefits.
Gifts of Retirement Plan Assets
If you're like many Americans, your financial future will likely revolve around your retirement plan assets. To maximize the value of a retirement account, consider making a lifetime gift of its after-tax values to a tax-exempt deferred giving plan.
Gifts of Real Estate
Using real estate, such as your house, farm or commercial property, to fund a gift allows you to preserve your cash assets, receive significant tax and income advantages, and make a larger charitable gift than anticipated.
Gifts of Life Insurance
Donating your life insurance could be a wonderful way to fulfill your desire to support our work. By making the BCCC Foundation the beneficiary of an existing policy, you make good use of your resources and expand your ability to make a significant gift.
BCCC Foundation staff can work with you to decide the best use of your “life giving” where it will have the greatest impact for the College. As always, please consult your financial advisor, tax attorney or CPA before making these decisions or the Foundation can provide the name of a professional to work with you. Just call the BCCC Foundation at 410-209-6026 or visit our website, www.bcccfoundation.org.
