The Joseph F. Shields Legacy Circle honors and recognizes individuals who remember the Carroll Community College Foundation in their retirement or estate plans. The circle provides a way to thank donors during their lifetimes and see the impact of their gifts. Legacy Circle members join like-minded people invested in the future of our students and receive exclusive benefits.

Legacy giving does not require a large income or vast estate. Rather, it requires a thoughtful intention to make a difference by identifying a charitable organization in your will or estate plans. 

What are the benefits of joining the Joseph F. Shields Legacy Circle?

Benefits include:

  • A role in determining how your legacy gift will be used.
  • A relationship with the Foundation during your lifetime.
  • Satisfaction in knowing your legacy will make a difference in your community.
  • Special recognition in newsletters and annual reports (unless anonymity is desired).
  • Special designation on donor wall.
  • Invitations to special events, programs, seminars and other functions.
  • A way to further your personal financial goals while advancing the mission of the College.

How do I become a member of the Joseph F. Shields Legacy Circle?

  • Donors bequeath a designated asset that best aligns with their charitable intention in their end of life plans.
  • Donors notify the Carroll Community College Foundation of their plans and complete the Statement of Future Intent form.
