Other Types of gifts

 

Pledges

Pledges enable a donor to plan a personal giving program that is both convenient and tax-wise. A pledge may enable a donor to consider a more significant gift than would have otherwise been possible. Terms for payment on pledges are flexible and at the option of the donor. Learn more by calling Kristen Bennett at 903-670-2664.

Matching Gifts-Double Your Donation

Many employers sponsor matching gift programs and will match any charitable contributions made by their employees. Search for your corporation with the link above.

Endowments

Once established, an endowed fund is a dependable and perpetual source of support, since the principal is invested and only a portion of the earnings is spent annually. A minimum gift of $25,000 is needed to establish an endowment, while any amount is allowed for non-endowed funds. Call 903-670-2664 or send an e-mail to kristen.bennett@tvcc.edu for information on endowments.

Planned Gifts

In certain instances, it may be preferable from an estate, financial, and tax planning perspective to consider long-term gift planning as the best way to make a gift. This can be accomplished through various gift instruments, such as charitable remainder trusts, gift annuities, charitable lead trusts, and bequests.
