Make A Gift

  • Generally, donors can designate funds to areas of greatest interest to them. Unrestricted gifts allow the Foundation to direct funds to the highest priority needs of the college.

    Ways to Give

    • Cash Donations are available for immediate use by our Foundation.
    • Matching Gifts double the power of your personal giving. Check with your employer or other organizations with which you are affiliated as to whether they offer a matching gift program.
    • Stocks & Bonds and mutual funds may enable donors to contribute a larger gift at less cost.
    • Pledges provide a longer-term commitment over a designated period of time based on an agreed upon schedule.
    • Planned Giving enables you to make significant contributions that might not be possible during your lifetime by including the Carroll Community College Foundation in your will.
    • Life Insurance policies provide a wonderful legacy to the college.
    • Retirement Savings can be directed to the college by naming the Foundation as a partial beneficiary.
    • Gifts of Appreciated Real Estate can provide a charitable tax deduction and elimination of capital gains tax.

    Contact your tax adviser, insurance professional or attorney to maximize the tax benefits of your gift.


    For an annual commitment of as little as $500, an individual or organization may have a fund named for them. 


    With a gift of at least $25,000, donors can create a named, endowed scholarship fund to award to students based on donor selected criteria.  These endowed funds exist in perpetuity.

    Tax tips

    Beyond the usefulness of your gift, you receive tax benefits for your donation. Your gift should be made on or before Dec. 31 of the year in which you wish to receive the charitable income tax deduction.


    A corporation is permitted to make and deduct philanthropic investments of up to 10% of its taxable income. As with individuals, a corporation may carry over excess charitable contributions to the next five years.

With the help and guidance I received at Carroll, I was able to graduate with a 4.0 GPA and get accepted at several great universities." Melody Blades
