Giving Opportunities

There are a variety of options to consider when making a gift through the Golden West College Foundation:

Gift Annuities
A Charitable Gift Annuity is an extraordinary way to make an irrevocable deferred donation, increase your income, and slice your tax bill — all in one transaction. Our Charitable Gift Annuity program was created as a service to our many friends who have expressed a desire to make a gift of significance, while still retaining income from the gift property during their lives.

Annual Fund
Cash contributions to the Foundation’s annual fund are a critical source of private support for the college. Annual fund donations finance the scholarship program and other endeavors that strengthen the college but are not funded by the state.

Memorial Gifts
Gifts in memory of loved ones and deceased friends — or gifts which honor living individuals — are gratefully accepted by the Foundation.

Such contributions are often used to reflect the interests or talents of the person being honored. The Foundation is pleased to help potential donors explore appropriate uses for the memorial gifts.

Life Insurance Policies
The Golden West College Foundation may be named a beneficiary. Donation of a life insurance policy to the Foundation entitles the donor to a tax deduction for the cash surrender value.

Gifts In Kind
Donations of personal property, including vehicles, equipment and supplies, are gratefully accepted by the Golden West College Foundation. Please inquire with the Foundation Office about specific items being considered as gifts to the college.

A bequest designates a gift to the college in the donor’s will. Many alumni and friends have made a provision in their wills for Golden West College Foundation as a beneficiary.

If interested in this type of gift opportunity, please call Margie Bunten, GWC Director of Foundation and Community Relations, at 714/895-8315 or email her at
