There are many opportunities for alumni to give back to MWCC:
Direct cash gifts are the most common form of giving and can be unrestricted or designated for a specific project, program, or department.
Gifts of Securities
Outright gifts of appreciated securities (stocks, bonds, mutual fund shares) are tax deductible at full fair-market value if the donor has owned the asset for at least 12 months.
Gifts of residences, including vacation homes and farms, allow the donor to take a tax deduction, avoid capital gains taxes, retain lifetime occupancy for themselves and/or another person—and provide support for Mount Wachusett Community College.
Gifts of personal property such as art, jewelry, antiques, rare books, gold or silver offer the donor an immediate tax deduction; the amount depends on whether or not the gift is related to MWCC’s educational purpose.
Thousands of corporations, foundations, and other organizations will often match their employees’ charitable contributions either dollar-for-dollar, or at a ratio of 2-to-1, 3-to-1, or even 4-to-1.
For detailed guidelines on gifts of securities, tax benefits to the donor and other forms of giving please call Darlene Morrilly, executive director at 978-630.9276
