There are several paths that you might consider if you wish to support
the students at any of our campuses.
The Annual Fund
Each year the Foundation solicits annual gifts from alumni
and friends of its colleges. These gifts generally range from $25 to $1,000
and can be designated to a particular program, a specific scholarship,
and/or the campus of your choice.
Major gifts, as a rule, support a major project or the development of
a new scholarship fund. Projects might include gifts to the library, endowed
faculty positions, renovations of facilities, laboratory equipment for
classrooms, or much-needed campus beautification. Scholarships that are
supported at $10,000 or more are considered “endowed,” will
last into perpetuity, and can continue to support students through annual
Planned gifts, or bequests, are means of ultimately distributing your
estate. The best known mechanism for doing so is your Will, through which
you can specify which campus, which program or which scholarship you wish
to leave a portion of your estate. However, there are also methods by
which you can gain immediate tax benefits and earn lifelong income while
watching your support go to work for the campus of your choice. The
Foundation has established and managed several Charitable Remainder Trusts
over the years and can work with your financial advisor in creating this
win-win type of gift.
Some of the Foundation’s most treasured donors are current
and former employees throughout the Yuba Community College District.
Those participating include staff, administrators, faculty and board members.
While employed at our campuses, individuals can donate directly to the
program, project or scholarship of their choice or provide monthly
donations through payroll deduction.
Your gift does not have to be designated to a particular project, program
or scholarship. Unrestricted, or undesignated, gifts give the Foundation
the latitude to place money where it is needed the most. One example of
this type of support is our longstanding “Crossing Borders / Building Bridges”
program, which was initially funded with Foundation seed money.
