Giving Opportunities

AC FOUNDATION INITIATIVES

 

Annual Fund – Today, as we look back over 50 successful years of educating students, we must also prepare for the future of AC students.  Many students achieved their goals of earning a post-secondary education through scholarships and other special assistance made possible from friends like you.  Angelina College will conduct an Annual Campaign to raise funds to provide scholarships and financial support to our students.  With the Annual Fund, the destination of your gift is your choice.   You may choose to help increase the Angelina College General Fund, provide scholarships, or provide funding for your favorite College program.  There is always a place for you in the Annual Fund.  Please designate your gift to benefit:

 

Angelina College General Fund: AC is in the process of building its endowment to support the future needs of the institution, and your thoughtful contributions to this fund will increase the College’s ability to provide long-term financial support for students.  The importance of this endowment will increase as State funding for community colleges continues to decline.

Angelina College General Scholarship Fund:  Donations to the Scholarship Fund will be directed to students needing assistance with institutional tuition and fees to ensure student retention.

Other: Please indicate a particular program or department that you would like to support by indicating your choice when you make your gift.

 

Honorary & Memorial Gifts – Recognizing others through an Honorary or Memorial Gift is a thoughtful and generous way to acknowledge a person’s life and accomplishments.  A gift in honor or memory of a family member, friend, student, employee, or instructor is also a special way to support the Angelina College Foundation initiatives.  The AC Foundation will notify the honoree or next of kin if address is provided. 

 

Meningitis Initiative – This program provides a unique opportunity to help eliminate the barrier of the Meningitis vaccination (required by law and student federal aid cannot be used) to ensure that students have met all requirements for enrollment.   For many students, the Meningitis vaccination could be the barrier that keeps them from reaching their goals of a college education. 

 

Planned Giving – Creating a planned gift is an opportunity to achieve a lasting impact and to make a legacy gift to the College.  A wide range of planned gift options is available allowing your needs and interests to be met.  Bequests, gifts of insurance, and real estate gifts are a few ideas for planned giving.

Rowdy Card Fundraiser – Show your support for the students of AC by purchasing individual squares or multiple squares by adding the amount of each square on the “Rowdy Card.”  Your generous donation will directly benefit students in need and help them reach their greatest potential, and your tax-deductible donation benefits the Angelina College Foundation initiatives.  #mascotsname  #letsgetrowdy   #rowdytheroadrunner 

 

Student Emergency Aid – We would appreciate your support of this fund to provide a “Helping Hand” for students in critical need of funds during uncertain times.  Your gift will help students stay in school and ultimately ensure student success.  Our goal is to help eliminate barriers, offer student assistance in critical times, and aid students in achieving their goal of a college education.

 

Student Scholarships/Endowments – As educational costs are many times a barrier to higher education, scholarships continue to be a great way to invest in Angelina College while impacting the lives of students.  Named scholarships can honor an individual, create a corporate presence, and acknowledge the accomplishments and needs of AC’s students.  Scholarships can be established through an endowment or can be funded annually.
