Have An Impact

The Cowley College Foundation has five core areas in which we focus our efforts: Scholarships, Academic Programs, Arts, Athletics, and Facilities. We encourage you to consider giving to the Foundation in support of these great programs.

Career and Technical Education Center Campaign

The Cowley College Career and Technical Education Center campaign is under way! The new CTE Center will help train and certify graduates in areas of advanced construction trade, electrical, HVAC, welding, and criminal justice. The Career and Tech Ed Center will provide expanded space and new instructional technologies to educate and train our students. Like all foundations supporting higher education, the Cowley College Foundation (CCF) accepts these and other types of charitable gifts. Please consider these options as you are considering the Foundation or any 501c3 nonprofit you support.

7 Ways to Make a Gift

  • Multi-Year Pledge. A pledge to the campaign can be gifted over five years.
  • Gift of Cash (and pledged over five years). A cash donation and pledge work as it always has worked. There are annual tax benefits to be experienced if you itemize.
  • Gift of Securities. Stocks, bonds, mutual funds and more can be made to the CCF. We have an acceptance brokerage account. Make sure you transfer the stock into CCF’s name before it is sold. The best tax benefits are experienced when making a gift in this manner.
  • Gift by Credit Card. Yes, some donors utilize this method to make large gifts because they want their credit card points. Same annual tax benefits as a cash donation.
  • Gift from IRA/Retirement Account. You can donate up to $100,000 annually to your favorite nonprofits if you must take required minimum distributions from a retirement account(s).
  • Gift of Real Estate. A little more complicated, but gifts of real estate (second home, vacation home, farmland, commercial building, etc.) can come with specific and significant benefits.
