It takes a lifetime of experience to educate the next generation. When you consider a planned gift, you are making the difference of a lifetime in the long-term sustainability of Virginia Western and the dreams of generations of students. There are many Ways to Give, including:

  • Bequest in a will or trust
  • Name Virginia Western as a beneficiary of retirement assets or life insurance
  • Charitable gift annuities and trusts
  • and more

As you consider a planned gift, first make a plan…

How to Plan

Before you make your will and/or other estate plans, be well prepared.

  1. Make a list of the people you want to include in your plans–family, special friends, employees and charitable interests, including Virginia Western Community College.
  2. List the property you wish to distribute–include securities, real estate, life insurance, retirement plans, and personal possessions.
  3. Consider ways to match the people with the property.
  4. Finally, list any professional planners you may need to consult–for instance your attorney, banker, accountant, tax advisor, or representatives of a charitable recipient.

Once you’ve made your plan, click here to review the ways to give, and decide what’s right for you.
