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.


Introducing FreeWill


Everyone needs a will. The Foundation for Palm Beach State College has partnered with our friends at FreeWill. The intuitive, online writing tool is entirely free and easy to use and typically takes no more than 20 minutes from start to finish.
In addition to FreeWill helping to take care of your loved ones, you can use this free estate plan to include a gift to Palm Beach State College, a meaningful way to establish a long-lasting legacy for generations to come, without costing anything today. This tool is free to you whether choosing to include a gift to Palm Beach State or not and can be used to plan or create a fully valid legal will at no cost. 


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.
