Ways to Give

Beacon College is growing a legacy of offering world-class educational and academic experiences at an institution highlighted by its dedication and services to students who learn differently. The friendly campus embraces small town culture and is emboldened with the vision to keep living the promise.

There are many ways in which one can make a charitable contribution and donation to Beacon College. Whether it is an outright gift of cash, remembering the College in your estate, or alumni supporting the annual fund, this page will guide you through your gift giving opportunities.

Gift Designations

You can designate your gift to the Annual Fund to support and help maintain Beacon’s innovative academic and extracurricular programs. Alternately, you may choose to give to our Capital Campaign that seeks to raise $8 million for a much-needed state of the art academic building and $2 million earmarked for our endowment. Endowed funds will ensure the continuing success of the college and more importantly, provide scholarship funds for future students.

Deferred Gifts

A deferred gift is a present decision to make a future gift. The simplest deferred gift is to make a pledge to the College which is a promise to pay a specified amount over a period of time.  Additionally, you, as the donor, can also opt to make a pledge of recurring gifts, which is a series of gifts paid weekly, monthly or the interval of your choice.

Planned giving involves providing a future gift to the College through your financial and estate plans. If you are considering making a legacy gift, such as a bequest of a charitable trust, this can be an advantageous way to provide for a future gift. Beacon College welcomes gifts made through different planned giving arrangements, such as:

  1. Bequests and estate plan gifts
  2. Gifts of appreciated securities
  3. Charitable giving through donor advised funds
  4. Charitable transfer from an IRA*

* A charitable transfer from your IRA directly to Beacon College is feasible. Please consult your financial advisor regarding tax law regulations, and age requirements for such a distribution.
