change lives Today and into the future

Plan now. Give later.

Often called a legacy gift, a planned gift allows you to retain control of your assets while making a deep and lasting difference for student success at CCS.  Legacy gifts offer unique benefits that may actually increase the value of your estate for your heirs. A legacy gift costs you nothing today, but can have a significant impact on our community now and in the future!

Planned or legacy giving takes many forms, including bequests, living trusts and life insurance.  Which option is best will depend upon your particular situation and philanthropic goals.

Examples of planned gifting methods include:

  • Lifetime IRA Gifting
  • Gifts of Life Insurance
  • Bank Account Survivorship Benefit
  • Charitable Remainder or Annuity Trusts
  • Gifts of Real Estate


Big or small, every gift makeS a difference!

If you have questions about these giving options, or want to discuss other ways to leave a legacy, please contact us at (509) 434-5123.  Thank you for helping students achieve their dreams of a brighter future!
