Cash, Check, or Credit Card:

Gifts in Memory-Honor:

Gifts to the GCCC Endowment Association can express deep personal connections. They can mark special occasions such as birthdays or anniversaries, honor friends or mentors or memorialize loved ones. There is no more meaningful way to celebrate an occasion, a friendship or a life, than to make a gift that will benefit others far into the future.  We will send acknowledgements of honorary gifts to the living honorees.

Planned Giving:

You may be able to create more opportunities, and give more back to GCCC than you think possible! Gift planning applies to several types of gifts that are arranged now to benefit the college later.

The Endowment Association offers a free stewardship counseling service in partnership with Commerce Bank and Western Kansas Community Foundation. John Griffin, of Stewardship Counseling LLC, provides a unique concept of offering estate planning services with an unbiased opinion and comprehensive guidance. Please contact Jeremy at 620-276-9570 to learn more or schedule an appointment with John.

Gift planning can reduce taxes on your income and estate, resulting in a larger gift. Many planned gifts bring additional advantages, such as steady, secure income for you. Planned gifts can include cash, securities, stock, retirement plan assets, real estate, life insurance proceeds, charitable remainder trusts, charitable lead trusts, tax-free IRA transfers, charitable gift annuities and much more.

To provide support to the students and faculty of GCCC in your will or estate plan, it's as simple as naming the Garden City Community College Endowment Association (our legal name) as a beneficiary. If you've already included the GCCC Endowment Association in your estate plan, contact us to ensure that your gift is properly recognized in the Heritage Circle and that your intentions are carried out.

These gifts are very flexible and provide support to GCCC, the GCCC Endowment Association, and you, in many ways!

Matching Gifts:

You may be able to multiply the impact of your gift! Many businesses participate in a matching gift program where your gift to the association may be matched by your employer. Your gift could be increased from one to three times for each dollar contributed. Check with your human resources department for details.
