Tradition! Pride! Spirit!THE LEGACY SOCIETY

The Legacy Society is composed of individuals who believe in the mission of the Foundation. Members believe it is imperative that the rich tradition of educational excellence offered by The State College of Florida continues for generations to come. Legacy Society members, through their generosity are the foundation upon which SCF can continue to build for both today and tomorrow. Membership in the Legacy Society is obtained by providing a planned gift to the Foundation, regardless of the gift size. Members have made gifts through:

  • Bequests
  • Charitable Trusts
  • Gift Annuities
  • Life Insurance Policies
  • Real Estate
  • Remainder Interest in Property
  • Retirement Funds

Members elect to make gifts to provide for the long-term strength of the college and to provide security/tax savings for themselves and their loved ones.
