Ways to Help
West Virginia Northern Community College is the largest higher education institution in the Ohio Valley. Gifts from alumni, employees, committed citizens, corporations and foundations help students lacking the financial resources to achieve their educational and career goals. Your generous support enables us to continue educating the leaders of tomorrow. The following are the various ways you can partner with us as we continue to develop the potential of "ALL WHO WISH TO LEARN".
Most gifts to WVNCC Foundation take this form and it is easy as writing a check or using your MasterCard, Visa or Discover card. Checks should be made payable to West Virginia Northern Community College Foundation.
Gifts of Appreciated Property
With careful planning, charitable gifts of long-term appreciated securities or real estate can create very favorable tax benefits, such as the elimination of paying long-term capital gains tax receiving an income tax charitable deduction.
Many companies will match your contribution to the WVNCC Foundation. Submit your company's matching gift form with your contribution and it can significantly increase your support and associated giving level.
Many, if not most people, own some form of life insurance. This type of gift can play a very important part in planned charitable giving. Life insurance for charitable purposes can be accomplished by either the transfer of ownership of an existing policy to the WVNCC Foundation or the purchase of a new policy which names the WVNCC Foundation as the beneficiary and/or owner.
Bequests and Deferred Gifts
Gifts through wills and bequests or other deferred plan gifts, such as your retirement plan account, give you the opportunity to honor and sustain your family name in conjunction with WVNCC Foundation's name recognition program.
Life Income / Charitable Trusts
Charitable Trusts and charitable gift annuities offer an opportunity to make a substantial gift to WVNCC Foundation without forfeiting the annual income produced by these assets. You can retain income for your life and the life of your spouse. This type of gift can also be structured to create a substantial tax benefit over a period of years.
