Planned Giving

Together we can empower a better tomorrow.


Many Palm Beach State College Foundation supporters choose to include a gift in their wills. It's an incredibly powerful way to invest in the future of our community and have an impact for generations to come, but without any cost to you now. When you choose to make a contribution, the Foundation works with you to ensure your wishes are fulfilled.

The Palm Society

Give the Gift of Education

Legacy giving offers us a way to make a difference, far beyond the measure of one lifetime. Palm Society members have seen the impact of prior gifts and want their legacy to have the same kind of impact in the future. And your gift will have meaning and impact for years.

Members of the Palm Society imagine a future where no student is turned away from Palm Beach State College because of money. They believe a college education should always be affordable and accessible.

Becoming part of this community of givers is easy. Simply make a gift to Palm Beach State College in your will or trust and let us know. We will take care of the rest.


Ways to Give

Gifts from your Will: Bequests

Make a gift to Palm Beach State College through a provision in your will or living trust. Contact us for simple language you can use to make PBSC part of your estate plan with a gift of cash, securities, or real estate.


Charitable IRA Rollover: Minimum Distribution

If you’re 70-1/2 or older, you can transfer up to $100,000 a year from your IRA directly to Palm Beach State College as part of your required minimum distribution. The College gets a meaningful gift and you avoid paying income tax.


Life Income Gifts: Charitable Gift Annuities

Establishing a charitable gift annuity allows you to gain the security of fixed payments for life, receive a tax deduction for a portion of your gift, and leave a legacy gift to Palm Beach State College.


Gifts of Life Insurance: Name PBSC as your beneficiary

Name Palm Beach State College as the beneficiary of an existing life insurance policy or consider donating a paid-up policy you no longer need.


Gifts of Stock: Stocks, Bonds & Mutual Funds

Consider donating appreciated stocks, bonds, or mutual fund shares instead of cash. Donors avoid capital gains taxes and get a charitable deduction for their gift. Get more information about Gifts of Stock.


When You Give Property: Real Estate and Other Assets

When you give the gift of real estate or other property you can deduct the fair market value from current taxes and reduce estate taxes in the future.
