Endowed Scholarship

Endowed scholarships are invested in their entirety and are awarded from interest earned. To create an endowed scholarship fund, contact J.

You can add an employer matching program to your donation. If you have any questions, contact J. Gottman, Director of  Development, at 580-237-4433, or Email Him.

Named Funds
Establishing a Legacy Named Fund is a powerful way to in perpetuity honor the legacy of a family member, classmate, favorite professor, or other loved one. These generous gifts will help make education and transformative leadership and service experiences possible today and create rich opportunities for tomorrow. Your gift can be designated as unrestricted-supporting the entirety of our growing organization's mission or it can also be designated to support scholarships, leadership development or other programs.  To create a named fund, contact J. Gottman, Director of  Development, at 580-237-4433, or Email Him.

Donor Advised Funds 
There are several benefits to making a gift to through donor advised funds (DAF’s).   A donor-advised fund, or DAF, is a giving account established at a public charity. When you contribute cash, securities, or other assets to a DAF you are generally eligible to take an immediate tax deduction. Those funds can then be invested for tax-free growth. When you are ready, you can recommend grants from the DAF to non-profit organizations like the Legacy Foundation. 

Charitable Rollovers
Charitable rollovers from your Individual Retirement Accounts to support the Legacy Foundation's mission and programs can be a transformative way to give at the end of the year. The Taxpayer Relief Act of 2012 restored the popular IRA charitable rollover provision, allowing donors age 72 or older to realize significant benefits for gifts made from either a traditional or Roth IRA. 

Planned Giving 
Charitable Bequests provide a way for you to remember the Legacy Foundation in your will and can reduce your inheritance taxes. Your will can designate gifts of cash, securities or other property, or a percentage of the remainder of your estate. Learn more about the 1907 Society, our planned giving program, which provides opportunities for bequests and other life-income gifts. 

Other Ways to Give
Depending on your individual income and capital gains tax considerations, other gift options may be beneficial to you. Some of these methods include, but are not limited to:
•    Qualified charitable distributions (QCDs) from individual retirement accounts
•    Making an outright gift or establishing a charitable gift annuity with appreciated assets such as securities or real estate
We would be happy to discuss these or other gift options with you. We also encourage you to discuss gift options with your wealth planner or tax advisor.
