Gifts & Estate Planning

Gift and estate planning offers you the opportunity to support Gulf Coast State College now or after your lifetime, helping you arrange your philanthropic giving with your overall financial and estate plans. Many giving options even offer you financial benefits, allowing you to make the greatest impact on our students while maintaining the future security of you and your loved ones. Gift planning allows you to choose methods of giving that may:

  • Earn income, pay fewer taxes, and secure your retirement
  • Enhance your net estate
  • Create a personal legacy to the Gulf Coast State College

We have a handout called, Why a Planned Gift, that will give you some details on the planned giving and estate planning vehicles available to you.

To get started, please complete our Statement of Support (PDF). This document, or other related documents you may have available, will help provide the information we need to begin planning your Legacy gift. For assistance please contact Margie Mazur at [email protected]u / (850) 872-3812 or Dunkin McLane at [email protected] / (850) 872-3810.
