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.
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.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org or 972-599-3147.
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.
