Other Ways to Support CCES

You can support CCES in many ways. Unlike tuition payments, philanthropic gifts provide tax benefits to donors, either now or in the future. Your gifts may be restricted to a specific purpose, such as an endowment in support of faculty salaries, or unrestricted, such as contributions to Annual Giving.

Cash gifts

Cash gifts, which are tax-deductible, may be made by check or credit card, in person, through the mail, or online. Gifts of any amount may be made to Annual Giving. Your participation counts.

Matching gifts

Matching gifts are available through many corporate programs.

Non-cash gifts of securities

Non-cash gifts of securities, such as stock, or other assets, such as life insurance, annuities, and real estate, may be made through your broker or the CCES Development Office. Giving securities may allow you to make a larger gift without affecting your cash flow. You will also avoid capital gains tax on appreciated securities. Securities may be designated for Annual Giving, endowment, or capital gifts. Consult your financial advisor for information about the tax implications of a gift of securities or other assets, such as a charitable gift annuity, charitable remainder trust, or charitable lead trust. To learn more about gifts of stock, please contact Bibby Sierra at sierrab@cces.org or (864)331-4233


To provide for a future generation of CCES students, consider a legacy gift in your will. Your financial advisor may arrange a bequest through your lawyer or financial consultant. Contact us to inform us of your intention so that we may honor you as a member of our Heritage Society.
