Foundation: Ways to Give


Make a Difference Today

Your legacy tells a story about you: what you value and what has given your life shape and meaning. 

One important way to craft your legacy is through planned giving.

By including the Long Beach City College Foundation in your estate plan, you can leave a legacy of learning. 

The Long Beach City College Foundation invites you to create your own special legacy through giving options that can provide tax and financial benefits to you, while permanently endowing important LBCC scholarships and programs for students for future generations.

If you have already included LBCC in your estate plans please let us know so that we can express our gratitude and discuss the impact your generosity will have on our future students.

When you donate to the Long Beach City College Foundation, you are doing more than just giving a monetary gift – you show your willingness to support the college’s commitment to improving educational instruction, providing quality campus improvements, and expanding the economic opportunities of our students.

IRA Distribution 

Any individual who has attained the age of 70 1/2 may make a qualified charitable distribution (QCD) from an individual retirement account (IRA). A QCD permits annual direct transfers to a qualified charity totaling up to $100,000 of tax-deferred savings. Under current tax laws, any amount processed as a QCD counts toward your required minimum distribution (RMD) requirement and reduces the taxable amount of your IRA distribution. This lowers both your adjusted gross income and taxable income, resulting in a lower overall tax liability. The Long Beach City College Foundation’s tax ID number is 95-3297459.

Securities & Stock Gifts 

By making a gift in the form of stocks, bonds or mutual fund shares, you can avoid capital gains taxes and claim a tax deduction. 

Payroll Deductions & Donations 

Employees of Long Beach City College may donate through payroll deductions by filling out the LBCC Payroll Deduction Form and sending it to Sarah Carrasco

If you are not an LBCC employee, you may still be able to donate to the LBCC Foundation through your employer. Check with your Payroll Department to verify whether or not your company is enrolled with YourCause.
