Planned Giving is for everyone

Many Mohawk Valley Community College supporters choose to leave a donation in their wills and trusts as an important way to have long-term impact, without any upfront cost during their lifetimes.

Making a will is one of the most impactful ways to extend your love and generosity to the causes and people you care about most. Legacy giving isn’t only for the wealthy — gifts of any size are deeply appreciated, and have come in sizes ranging from $100 to $1 million. Together, we can continue making an impact for years to come.

Your Goal: Flexibility

Together, there are many ways for us to help the Mohawk Valley turn challenge into opportunity.

You can create a gift that costs you nothing today. You can benefit the next generation of students with flexibility to adjust your plans if your circumstances change by naming the MVCC Foundation as a beneficiary of your:

  • Will
  • Living Trust
  • Retirement Plan such as IRA, 401(k), or 403(b) 
  • Life Insurance Policy
  • Bank Account
  • Brokerage Account, or
  • Donor-advised Fund

In fact, there are many ways that your gift can not only help MVCC, but also help you achieve your goals in life and secure your family's future. Let us help you reach your goals:

  • Increase my retirement income.
  • Maximize my family's inheritance.
  • Save for college for my children or grandchildren.
  • Provide supplemental income to a loved one.
  • Increase my support for MVCC without tapping my current income or ready cash.
  • Continue my support for MVCC forever.
