Ways of Giving

Established to annually award a scholarship in the donor's name in perpetuity.

Established to award scholarships to students once a year.

One-time contributions for scholarships disbursed within the academic year and in accordance with the donor's wishes.

Donations that include bequests, life insurance, trusts, or annuities, and can maximize the donor's income, capital gains and estate tax savings.

Additionally, there are opportunities to give In-Kind donations such as equipment or supplies, Corporate Matching Gifts, or to become an Event Sponsor or Underwriter.

IRA Contribution

Required minimum distributions (RMDs) are an option for any retirees that are at least 72. The charitable distribution is a special provision allowing eligible donors to exclude the donation from taxable income AND count toward RMD. This allows you to give a charitable gift made directly to public charities, including the LSC Foundation, while also satisfying the RMD. For more information please contact: foundation@lonestar.edu

Gifts of Stock

To contribute securities directly to Lone Star College Foundation, please contact foundation@lonestar.edu with your intentions so we can appropriately allocate and acknowledge your gift.
