Planned Giving

Leaving a Legacy at PCC

Planned giving is a technique that offers you the maximum personal benefits for your charitable giving. Through favourable tax treatments, planned giving may offer you ways to make more significant gifts than you might have otherwise thought possible.

With careful planning, it is possible to reduce or eliminate income tax, capital gain taxes, and other “transferable” taxes such as estate taxes, gift taxes and generation-skipping taxes. Through some gift options, you can enjoy these tax savings while converting appreciated assets into an income for yourself and others.

Planned giving is a tool that helps you achieve your charitable goals for PCC and enhances your financial plans and security.


Gift annuities, charitable remainder trusts, and charitable lead trusts are examples of some planned giving vehicles. By giving such gifts, you also become a member of the Legacy Society at Piedmont Community College.

Planned gifts to the PCC Foundation may require the assistance of a professional, such as a CPA, attorney, trust officer, certified life underwriter, realtor and College staff member.
