Endowment Funds

Endowment funds are an investment in the future of the college. Annually, the college receives a percent of the value of each endowment to support scholarships, professorships or research -depending on the donor’s wishes- and any additional income is reinvested in the fund. The principal remains untouched. Establishing an endowed fund creates a permanent legacy at the college. A minimum donation of $25,000 creates an endowed fund.

Estate and Life Income Gifts

You can plan a gift to benefit us today or after your lifetime, often with tax benefits. These include gifts through wills and living trusts, beneficiary designations, charitable trusts, and gift annuities. Several of these vehicles offer you a lifetime income, with the remainder going to the college afterward. Many donors find planned gifts are an ideal way to support a cause that is important to them, while meeting their income needs and/or providing for family members.

Gifts of Property

Non-cash items, such as real estate, art collections, rare books, etc., may be gifted to the CPPS. Call Kelly Sylvester at 509-368-6675, if you are interested in exploring this type of donation.

Stock Transfers

You may either have your stockbroker contact us, or ask us to contact him/her so that stock can be transferred from your account to ours. Besides qualifying for a charitable deduction, direct transfers of stock avoid capital gains taxes.
