PLANNED GIVING Making a bequest from your future estate can be a generous way to maximize your gift. One way to make a planned gift is designating the VFCCE in a will for a specific amount or a percentage of the estate. Charitable gift annuities, life insurance policies, or designations from retirement plans are other forms of planned giving.

“The inclusion of the community college in your estate plans provides a future promise, investing in yet-to-be-determined programs, ideas, and student success. What a rich legacy for the betterment of our communities and commonwealth, enabling citizens to create a better quality of life.” Edwin C. Hall, VFCCE Board Member
