Your life insurance agent can discuss with you the types of insurance gifts you can make. Insurance gifts can benefit you and UCC in many ways. You can make a substantial gift with modest premium payments, or it's a good use of paid-up policies that are no longer needed for family members. You may also name Umpqua Community College Foundation as a beneficiary of a portion of your life insurance policy.
You can give private, commercial, or agricultural property to the Umpqua Community College Foundation. We prefer that you contact us during the early stages of your planning so we can jointly decide the best use of the property by the Foundation.
You can list UCC Foundation as a beneficiary of your IRA, 401K or 403B. Ask your plan administrator for the proper paperwork and send a copy to UCC Foundation.
You may include a gift to UCC Foundation in your will or trust. Work closely with your attorney to make UCC Foundation a recipient of a future gift. Please notify UCC Foundation of the gift.
Charitable Remainder Trust
By transferring assets to the Umpqua Community College Foundation to establish a trust, you or a beneficiary receive a lifetime income. Eventually, the remaining assets of the trust pass on to the Foundation. This gift works well if you need income now. This is appropriate for gifts of $50,000 or more.
Retain Life Estate
If you deed property (a house, summer home, farm home, etc.) to the Umpqua Community College Foundation, you and/or your spouse retain the right to live in the house for the remainder of your life. You also receive an immediate income tax deduction for the gift. The Foundation will most likely sell the property when you or your spouse no longer need it.
Your Donation is Tax-Deductible
The Umpqua Community College Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Your contribution is tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law. No goods or services were provided in exchange for your donation.
