Annual

The foundation maintains a general annual fund to which small gifts combined with other small gifts create numerous scholarship opportunities for students. In addition, yearly gifts of $1,250 or more will create a named scholarship of your choice, which is renewable annually. Donors have the option of assigning criteria, such as designating a scholarship to students in a particular area of study.  An annual reception honors donors and recipients and provides an opportunity for them to meet each other.

Endowed

Endowments provide a reliable source of financial support that will help create the margin of excellence Collin College needs to realize its vision, attract and retain high quality faculty and support talented students. Creating an endowed fund is making a gift in perpetuity and demonstrates a special belief in the future of Collin County, its residents and its students.  Endowed scholarship levels begin at $25,000. However, the foundation gladly accepts gifts of smaller amounts over time until the endowment level is reached.  Naming opportunities exist for gifts of larger amounts and can be designated for scholarships, professorships or program support. Our foundation staff will gladly assist you with any questions you may have regarding naming opportunities.

Special Events

Events held throughout the year give donors a special opportunity to support scholarships and have fun at the same time. The foundation typically hosts one major event in the spring of each year. In addition to purchasing tickets and attending, we also provide sponsorship opportunities at varying levels. If you would like to be added to our mailing list, please contact Kim Davis at kadavis@collin.edu or 972-599-3147.

Planned Giving

Planned giving options afford donors the opportunity to create a lasting legacy through wills, trusts, revocable living trusts and other deferred gift vehicles. Other creative gift plans provide opportunities to transfer ownership of your home, farm or other treasured asset to ensure your dream of helping others succeed through education is met. Our staff will work with you and your financial advisors to ensure that your legacy lives on through your gift to the Collin College Foundation.
