The SCCF Legacy Society consists of a unique group of philanthropists who will leave an enduring legacy by acting not for today, but for tomorrow. They are individuals who include a gift for the SCC Foundation for the benefit of Southeastern Community College in their estate plans. Anyone who submits documentation of his/her estate gift qualifies for membership, no matter the size of the gift.

Steps to Membership:
Once you decide to make an estate gift to SCC Foundation, inclusion as a Legacy Society member takes just three simple steps:
The language following this paragraph may aid you and your attorney in preparing your bequest to the SCCF for the benefit of SCC. Please note that the following sample language is intended only as a general guide for those preparing wills or trusts. All bequests to SCC should be designated with the SCC Foundation as the beneficiary. The SCC Foundation is recognized as of the official organization to receive and administer gifts and bequests on behalf of SCC.
I give, devise and bequest to the Southeastern Community College Foundation, a non-profit corporation organized in accordance with the laws of the State of Iowa for the purpose of supporting Southeastern Community College, an institution of higher education, with district offices in West Burlington, Iowa (check and complete all that apply).
The property comprising this gift may, for investment purposes, be merged with any of the general investment assets of the SCC Foundation, but the gift shall be entered in the Foundation's books and records as the _________________________________ Fund, and shall always be so designated. The distributions from the fund shall be used (check and complete all that apply)
If you select a specific purpose for your gift, inclusion of the following sentence will ensure that the bequest remains useful through the decades.
If, in the judgment of the SCC Foundation board of directors, changed circumstances should, at some future time, render the designated use of this fund impracticable, unwise or inappropriate, then the board shall use the fund to further the objectives and purposes of SCC, giving consideration to my special interest as evidenced by the purpose described above.
If you choose to name the SCC Foundation as a beneficiary, please let us know your plans.
Please contact Rebecca Rump, Executive Director of the SCC Foundation at 319.208.5065 for more information or to schedule a confidential appointment.1
Neither SCC nor the SCCF make any representations that any such gift shall constitute a charitable contribution for the purposes of any deduction under the federal estate, gift or income tax laws, nor the laws of any state. However, the SCCF currently is a qualified charitable institution and has no reason to believe that such contribution would not qualify for any lawful deduction.1
