There are several ways you can be eligible for membership in the Heritage Circle. Through a bequest, you can name RCCD Foundation in your will or living trust. Your attorney can assist you in planning your bequest. Often, a bequest can be made simply with the addition of a codicil to your existing will.
Establishing a Charitable Gift Annuity allows you to receive from the Foundation a guaranteed, partly tax–free income for life in exchange for a gift of cash or other assets.
A plan may also be devised through which a spouse, parent or other loved one can receive guaranteed payments, or a deferred payment can also be arranged as part of a retirement plan or for providing income for family members to attend college.
Endowing a Scholarship in honor or memory of a loved one is an excellent way to provide support that will benefit students now and in the future. Our endowed scholarship program is very flexible and tailored to meet your needs.
You may choose a Charitable Remainder or Charitable Lead Trust. The Charitable Remainder Trust will provide you with extra fixed or variable income for your lifetime. You can set the amount of income you will receive when you establish your trust, and assets within the trust can appreciate tax–free over your lifetime. The Charitable Lead Trust allows you to set aside assets for charitable use for a limited period of time, after which the property is returned to you or your family. These options can offer significant tax benefits.
Your gift of Property may allow you to make a larger gift at less cost to you. Gifts of appreciated property, real estate, or securities are gift options that can be of mutual benefit for you and the College.
Gifting a Life Insurance Policy to the RCCD Foundation is an excellent way to allow you to make use of an asset you no longer need for your family's security.
Other Planned and Deferred Gift Options are available to meet your needs while benefiting the College and students. Please call the RCCD Foundation Office at (951) 222–8627 for more information and assistance.
