Ways to Give
Donating to LTCC Foundation is easy and in most cases, tax deductible.
Annual Fund - LTCC Foundation raises annual funds from friends, corporations and alumni. Annual Fund dollars are one of the most important fundraising priorities for the College, as LTCC has few other sources of flexible funding. Annual Fund contributions allow LTCC Foundation to quickly respond to College needs providing special opportunities and support administrative costs related to raising private funds for the College.

President's Circle - this annual membership program provides benefits in exchange for your generosity. The President's Circle members are special friends and supporters of LTCC who understand the value of education and the need for a successful philanthropic Foundation to support it. Members play a vital role in continuing the tradition of excellence at LTCC.
Taste of Gold - LTCC Foundation has developed an annual wine tasting event, outdoors in the elegant entrance courtyard. Guests enjoy tantalizing food and wine tastings and entertainment provided by LTCC students and faculty. It's an evening you won't want to miss!
Naming Opportunities - LTCC has a tradition of naming College facilities in honor of persons or entities that have made important contributions to enable the teaching, learning and public service missions of the College. Numerous exclusive opportunities are available by contacting the Foundation.
Memorial Donations - A donation in memory of a beloved family member or friend is a thoughtful way to honor them and affirm the values and priorities of their life. Memorial gifts advance the unrestricted Annual Fund unless otherwise restricted by the donor. Once gifts are received, the Foundation sends a thank you to the donor and an acknowledgement to the next of kin.
Restricted Gifts - LTCC Foundation understands that our donors feel a special connection to many of our programs. For this reason, donors may consider restricting their gift for a particular purpose. Restricted gifts must be related to the purpose of the College, be carefully coordinated to serve the best interests of the College and be aligned with the College's annual planning and evaluation process. If you would like to consider a restricted gift, the foundation executive director will work with you to meet these requirements and ensure that your contribution complies with IRS regulations.
Scholarships - Most LTCC students benefit from some source of financial assistance including scholarships. Each quarter students attend LTCC with hopes and dreams of realizing their potential and your support can be the single most important factor to their success. Scholarship support provides hope and inspiration to these students and an investment in education can be the gift that lasts a lifetime.
Foundation for the Future Scholarship - The Foundation for the Future Scholarship was established in 2000 for local high school graduates (South Tahoe and Whittell High Schools) who earn a minimum GPA of 3.0. These students receive $1,000 over two years to support their educational goals.
Endowed Scholarships - Scholarship donors have an opportunity to create a named Endowed Scholarship for a minimum contribution of $10,000. Once the scholarship is established, the principle is never spent and annual interest is awarded to students who meet established scholarship criteria.
Additional Scholarships - Many additional scholarship opportunities exist with specific criteria. Please contact the Foundation to discuss these opportunities.
Estate/Planned Giving* - Donors have different financial concerns and an outright gift may not be the best choice. A planned gift may align better with your personal values and will support the mission of LTCC Foundation. There are many ways to remember LTCC Foundation in your estate plan and many cost nothing to establish. A few options you may want to consider:
*Although LTCC Foundation does not practice estate planning, we would be pleased to discuss how to get started with the process. By including LTCC Foundation in your planned giving you will become a member of our Legacy Society and will be recognized in our Annual Report and on the Foundation's webpage: www.ltcc.edu, click on "About LTCC" and then "Foundation."
Gifts-in-Kind - A gift-in-kind is tangible personal property, such as equipment, books, artwork, etc. These contributions require various types of documentation to meet institutional and IRS requirements and must also be related to the purpose of the College and involve more extensive documentation than cash contributions. If you are interested in considering a gift-in-kind, please contact the Foundation for more information.
Volunteer - The Foundation has numerous opportunities for volunteer help, which can be done in the office, during an event and at times even from the comfort of your own home.
