Life Insurance

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.

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.
