Ways to Give

There are many other ways you can help students achieve their educational goals and support San Mateo County Community Colleges Foundation’s work.  You can help! 

DONATE A VEHICLE – LET YOUR OLD CAR OR BOAT PROVIDE NEW HOPE TO A STUDENT   No need to place for-sale ads, take phone calls, schedule appointments, meet with strangers or haggle with dealers over price. If your vehicle is running or not, you can turn it into a gift to support local college students. Go to http://carswithheart.com/donate, select “San Mateo County Community Colleges Foundation” from the drop-down list, and fill in the form to arrange pick-up of the vehicle.  It is that easy.

INCLUDE THE FOUNDATION IN YOUR ESTATE PLAN   Wealth is not a requirement — only planning. A planned gift often results in a contribution much larger than you ever thought possible.  Learn More.

STOCK   Gifts of marketable stocks or mutual fund shares that have increased in value can have an immediate impact and also create an immediate income tax deduction for you based on the asset’s current value.

MATCHING GIFTS   Many donors multiply their support by making use of their employer’s matching gift programs. To find out if your company participates in such a program, ask your HR department.

BECOME A SCHOLARSHIP DONOR   For many people, the prospect of attending college depends on the availability of financial assistance. Learn more about becoming a scholarship donor.
