Planned Giving

GEORGE MCNEELY LEGACY SOCIETY

A planned gift is a great way to make a charitable gift, while meeting other personal, family or financial needs. Members of the George McNeely Legacy Society, for example, established gifts in their estates to support Ventura College and its students. Many members in this group established a unique gift that is associated with a campus named legacy or an endowed scholarship. Their names will be honored in perpetuity at Ventura College and with tax benefits to their estates.

Dr. George McNeely was one of Ventura College Foundation’s original board members and one of its most devoted donors. He set a generous example by leaving his own legacy at Ventura College through a charitable gift annuity.

Here are just a few ways you can make a lasting difference at Ventura College:

OUTRIGHT GIFTS:

  • Cash
  • Stock
  • Real Estate

ESTATE GIFTS:

  • Bequests (an old policy you no longer need or a portion of a policy)
  • Life insurance (an old policy you no longer need or a portion of a policy)
  • Living trusts, charitable gift annuities or trusts providing you with tax benefits
