Consider Gift Planning

One of the most powerful ways to make a difference in the lives of our students for years
to come is through a gift in your will. Thanks to some friends of Mohawk Valley Community College, you can now make a will in less than 25 minutes, completely free to you.

If you would like to speak to a lawyer about your will, this same free tool can help
document your wishes beforehand. Secure your legacy for the people and causes you love today. Click here to get started.

Gifts In Kind

Gifts in kind are a form of giving in which, instead of giving money to buy goods and services, those products or services are themselves given. In the past, MVCC has received gifts in kind that include airplanes, office furnishings, and equipment.

Employee Payroll Deduction

If you are an MVCC employee and wish to, you can make your gift through payroll deduction.

Matching Gifts

You may be able to double or even triple the impact of your gift if you or your spouse’s employer participates in a Corporate Matching Gifts program. Simply speak with your human resources or personnel office about obtaining a gift match form and include the completed form with your contribution.
