Make A Gift


Ways of Giving

There are many ways to give to the Compton Community College Foundation that create opportunities for excellence at the College. Your gift can support deserving students, enhance an academic program, or improve a cultural experience at the College while fulfilling your own personal philanthropic desires and goals.Every private donation makes a big impact on the lives of students.

A $500 scholarship may cover tuition for a student's one semester of classes. Significant amounts can fund scholarships and enhance programs for many years.

Contact us for information on various donor programs.

Consult your attorney or financial advisor.


Consider giving to Compton Community College Foundation through these methods:

Outright Gifts


Cash

Cash gifts need to have a stated ceiling and accompanied by a SSN for tax audit trail.

Make a cash gift by:

  • Sending a check or money order payable to the Compton Community College Foundation and a letter stating how you want the gift to be used.
  • Charge a gift charged to your credit card.
  • pledge to donate on a payment schedule

Consult your attorney or financial advisor.


Real Estate

Real estate includes homes, commercial buildings, and other property. Gifts of real estate can be very helpful to the College while providing donors with substantial benefits, as well. Even if the value of the property is more than a donor wishes to give (or deduct) in any given year, a portion of it may still be used to make a gift. Please note that each potential gift of real estate must be reviewed before it can be accepted.

You benefit with

  • Current income tax savings.
  • A charitable tax deduction.
  • A bypass of capital gains taxes and penalties

Consult your attorney or financial advisor.



Planned Gifts

You can support Compton Community College Foundation College now, and beyond your lifetime.  By including specific language in a will or trust naming the Compton Community College Foundation as the recipient of a gift, donors help ensure the future of the College's services and programs in the community, and can further their financial goals.  These gifts may provide immediate income and substantial tax savings for the donor.

  • The trust makes periodic payments to you and/or your beneficiaries.
  • When the trust terminates, the remaining property becomes a Foundation asset.

Your benefits are the same as for charitable gift annuities.

Consult your attorney or financial advisor.
