Giving Later - Gift Planning to Delta College
You Can Influence the Future
The Delta College Foundation can help you establish a legacy gift to provide for students for generations to come. We can offer ideas for how you can make a gift either in your lifetime or through your estate plan. These can provide financial benefits and substantial tax-savings to you. Delta College will recognize your generosity through annual publications, on campus plaques, or by naming a scholarship or program in your name.
It is possible to designate a specific purpose for your gift through your bequest or will. The provision in your will for making a gift to the Delta College Foundation will depend upon the type of gift and your unique circumstances. Should you choose to include us in your long-range plans, please keep in mind that our full legal name and non-profit tax number is:
The Delta College Foundation
(federal tax ID #38-2274366)
1961 Delta Road; University Center, MI 48710
These sample Bequest Clauses can be helpful to your attorney and can be added to your existing will.
You can name Delta College Foundation the beneficiary of life insurance, a living trust or your pension plan. Assets will then come directly to the College after your lifetime, avoiding the delay and costs of probate and saving considerable estate taxes.
