Donors may elect to support North Shore Community College through a charitable bequest which creates a living legacy to the College as well as provides personal estate tax benefits. Unrestricted bequests designate an outright or specific amount or percentage of an estate for the general purposes of the College. Gifts for a specific need and residuary gifts may also be made through an individual will. Additionally, trust agreements, gifts of appreciated stock and real estate may provide financial advantages to both the donor and the College.

North Shore Community College may also be named as partial or final beneficiary of group or individual life insurance, profit sharing or retirement plans, or other qualified 401(k) or IRA pension plans. Gifts of insurance may provide both income tax and estate tax savings to individual donors.

Memorial gifts may be directed to North Shore Community College by family recommendations at the time of death. Appropriate tributes may establish a scholarship, endow a faculty chair, augment the Library collection, or expand other educational programs at the College.
