Giving Opportunities

An investment in Central Carolina Technical College is truly an investment in the future of Clarendon, Kershaw, Lee and Sumter counties.

There are several methods of demonstrating support for Central Carolina:

Endowed Scholarship

The scholarship will be awarded annually to students who meet the specific criteria for as long as Central Carolina Technical College is in existence.

Full Scholarship

A donor may choose to pay for one or more student’s tuition and/or books for a year. The donor may specify the criteria to be used in selecting the recipient(s). The gift may be one-time or annual.

Partial Scholarship

The donor determines the amount of the scholarship, and the gift may be one-time or annual.

Cash Gifts
Donors can make cash contributions. Checks should be made payable to the “Central Carolina Technical College Foundation, Inc.”

Endowments
An endowed gift is one in which the principal is never used. Only the interest from the original donation is applied to a designated purpose. A major goal of the Central Carolina Technical College Foundation, Inc. is to establish a secure endowment fund ensuring long-term growth and stability for Central Carolina.

Life Insurance
This type of gift is valuable to Central Carolina because it is a substantial deferred gift; it will not be delayed during the administration of an estate; and the donor is provided with a current charitable income tax deduction equal to the “value” of policy transferred. It is recommended that a life insurance agent be contacted for information on the many types of insurance gifts that can be made.

Beneficiary through will or living trust
This provision provides a deduction against future values upon the death of the donor. Each circumstance requires individualized planning.

Personal Property
Gifts such as furnishings, books, and works of art may be tax deductible depending on appraised value and how the college will use the gift.

Deferred Gifts
Commonly referred to as Charitable Remainder Trusts, this gift provides donor (possibly spouse and/or children) with lifetime income as well as an income tax deduction.
