Invest in Prescott College

Support a Prescott College Education

Contributions from alumni, parents, faculty, staff and friends are critical to fulfilling PC's educational mission. They help PC maintain the caliber of its academic offerings, attract exceptional students and provide them with much-needed financial aid. Private donations also allow the college to strengthen its academic programs and recruit outstanding faculty. There is no lower-cost substitute for the type of teaching and learning that PC is committed to delivering. Your support will make this possible.

Typically planned gifts are part of estate planning and your funds do not come to the College until your estate matures. This type of giving is perfect for people who cannot afford to make a large gift during their lifetime, or for individuals looking to maximize tax benefits to their estate. Methods of planned giving include:

  • Bequests (naming Prescott College in your will); See our Wills and Bequests Brochure for more information
  • Life Insurance or other Beneficiary Designation
  • Charitable Lead Trusts
  • IRA Rollover
  • Retained Life Estate (give the College your house, but keep living there!)
  • Charitable Gift Annuities*
  • Charitable Remainder Trusts*

*These gifts allow you to receive income during your lifetime

The goal of estate planning is to provide peace of mind and financial support for yourself and your loved ones. After your family is taken care of, you can plan a charitable gift to extend your legacy beyond your lifetime, protect your loved ones, and reduce your taxes. When you include Prescott College in a planned gift, you become a member of the Charles Franklin Parker Legacy Society.
