Ways to Give
There are many ways you can give a gift to Central Carolina Community College. Your gifts fund many areas of the College including scholarships, programs and faculty. Please join the long list of dignitaries, alumni, parents and friends of Central Carolina Community College and help provide financial support to the College and its students and programs.
You can make a direct (cash) gift to CCCC in the following ways:
- Write a check payable to the "CCCC Foundation"; send it along with clear instructions for the use of your gift to:
- CCCC Foundation
- 1105 Kelly Drive
- Sanford, NC 27330
- Use our secure online giving form:
- Call the CCCC Foundation at 919-718-7332 if you prefer to give credit card information by phone or if you would like to talk with or arrange a meeting with a member of the Foundation staff.
In addition to helping with current needs, some friends of the college decide to assist with CCCC's future needs by remembering the CCCC Foundation in their wills and estate planning. Unless otherwise stipulated, bequests are normally added to the Foundation's Endowment funds. This means your gift, whatever the amount, will continue to support CCCC's mission always.
Gift Types include:
- A bequest in your will to the CCCC Foundation can be a specified amount, or a certain percentage after other specific bequests are fulfilled. Many people find that this is the best way for them to fulfill their desire to support and remember Central Carolina.
- Charitable Trusts
- For those with larger estates, a charitable trust can be used during planning of your estate. You can create a Charitable Trust with cash, stock, or other assets, making a significant gift to CCCC, while also reducing the tax burden for your estate.
Gifts in-kind are donated tangible and intangible assets and property. Some examples include artwork, books, equipment, automobiles and artifacts. These gifts must be reviewed with special care to ensure their usefulness to the college's programs. All gifts are subject to approval by the Executive Director of the Foundation prior to acceptance. For more information, call 919-718-7231
Stocks, Bonds & Mutual Funds
Giving shares of appreciated stock, bonds, mutual funds and other securities can be used to make a gift to the CCCC Foundation. Securities accepted by The Foundation are generally sold as soon as practical. No agreement shall be made with a donor prior to or subsequent to a gift that such securities will be held for any period of time. When you donate securities, rather than cash, you do not pay any capital gains tax on the appreciation in the securities and you receive a deduction for their full market value on the date of your gift.
Before making a securities gift of any kind, please contact Central Carolina Community College Foundation Office first.
We will provide the necessary information to make sure the transaction is handled to your specifications and you receive proper credit for your gift. Please call the CCCC Foundation at 919-718-7332.
Corporate Matching Gifts
Many companies match charitable contributions made by their current or former employees or board members. This is an excellent means to multiply the amount of a gift. Donors provide the appropriate matching gift form for submission to the matching gift company. Donors receive full credit for both the original and the matching gift.
Marketable Real Estate
A gift to Central Carolina Community College can be made through the donation of real property--commercial or residential, developed or undeveloped. Any gain on the sale of property donated to The Foundation is not taxed to the donor, provided the property was not subject to a binding agreement to sell created prior to the gift. Also, the sale of the property by The Foundation is generally tax-free.
If you are considering a gift of property, please call the CCCC Foundation at 919-718-7332.
Another possible way to remember the College is by making the CCCC Foundation the beneficiary of a retirement account or a paid-up life insurance policy. If you are considering this type of gift, please remember that you will need to change the beneficiary information on the account or policy. The disposition of these kinds of accounts usually depends upon the beneficiary instructions you have designated on the account, not instructions in your will.
An individual may name CCCC as a residual beneficiary of an IRA, 401(k), 403(B), TIAA-CREF, KEOGH, VALEC or other retirement plan accumulation and/or another corporate benefits program.
Please contact your retirement plan administrator, fund custodian, financial advisor or attorney to discuss how to make a change in the Plan beneficiary.
Please contact the CCCC Foundation to notify us of your intentions at 919-718-7332.
Gifts may be made to the College to honor or memorialize a friend, family member or loved one. Such gifts are acknowledged to the donor and to the person being honored or to the person's family if he/she is being memorialized.
