There's an urban legend which holds that community college graduates who go on to earn degrees at other institutions develop a stronger loyalty to the college that granted their highest degree. Perpetuating this legend is a limiting belief that keeps fundraising professionals from taking necessary steps to fully develop the potential that exists in alumni donors. One of these steps is to create a functional planned-giving program. This article presents various planned-giving options that community colleges may choose for a successful planned-giving program. These include (1) life insurance; (2) IRA/Retirement accounts; (3) personal property/specific items; (4) real estate; (5) contingent bequest; (6) residuary bequest; (7) charitable remainder trust; and (8) charitable lead trust.
