Planned and Tribute Gifts
Planned giving provides our alumni and friends with an opportunity to leave a legacy by returning something to the College through an unrestricted gift or by supporting worthy programs of special interest to them.
The pinnacle of giving to KC is a planned gift, which can include bequests and other types of estate gifts. Planned gifts are the perfect complement to the dedicated annual gifts you make throughout your lifetime, ensuring that your legacy carries on to provide for the long-term success of the College and future generations of students.
The easiest and most common form of gift planning is the inclusion of a gift to KC in your will or estate plan. However, there are many alternatives to consider.
Recognition and Memberships
In recognition of generous planned gifts, Keystone College provides these donors with membership in the exclusive Evergreen Society. If you have already included Keystone College in your estate plans, we would be honored to recognize you as a member of our Evergreen Society.
Donors have the opportunity to make a gift in honor or memory of special occasions and lives.
A gift to Keystone College is a great way to honor a wedding, anniversary, graduation or another life event. The College will recognize the person whose special occasion or accomplishment motivated your gift by listing them in the yearly donor report.
You can also honor the memory of a person or persons with a gift to the College. It is the perfect way to pay tribute to a friend or loved one, while supporting our students.
We also notify the family of the person being memorialized or the person being honored, by sending a card with your name and contact information. We invite them to reach out to you with their appreciation.
Many employers offer matching gift programs that allow you to multiply the impact of your giving. Please contact you employer’s human resources office to find out if they offer this benefit.
