Ten Ways To Give

1. Cash

Your personal cash gift is deductible from your adjusted gross income. Gifts may be made in honor or in memory of friends and loved ones. 

2. Stocks and Bonds

For full tax benefit, securities may be electronically transferred by your broker to a Foundation broker, or you may send unsigned stock certificates by certified mail to:

State College of Florida Foundation, Inc. 
5840 26th St W
Bradenton, FL 34207

3. Life Income Gifts

Gifts of appreciated property may generate income for you with positive tax benefits. Examples include gift annuities and charitable remainder trusts. 

4. Bequests

You may reduce inheritance taxes by designating in your will specific gifts of cash, property, or a percentage of the remainder of your estate. 

5. Lead Trusts

Property or assets may stay in the family, while your gift reduces estate taxes and supports The State College of Florida. 

6. Life Insurance

Designating The State College of Florida as a beneficiary of a paid-up policy or a new policy helps the college’s future endowment and provides you with a tax deduction. 

7. Retained Life Estate

You retain occupancy of the property for life but give your primary or vacation home or farm to the college for its future income. 

8. Real or Personal Property

You can deduct the full fair-market value of gifts of real estate or personal property (art, antiques, automobiles, etc.)

9. Retirement Plan Gifts

Remainder interest in IRA, 401k, and 403b plans may be designated to provide an income stream to loved ones and ultimately benefit the college at substantial tax savings.

10. Matching Gifts

Often your gift to The State College of Florida may be multiplied by matching funds from companies and foundations. Check with your company’s personnel office. 

The State College of Florida welcomes gifts of all types and will work with you and your financial advisor to maximize the tax benefits for you and the value of your gift.
