The Forsyth Tech Foundation

 

Why Your Gift Matters

 Scholarships, emergency grants to students in crisis, purchasing up-to-date equipment for classrooms and labs, employee professional development and many other funding needs all can be made possible with your help. Gifts to the Forsyth Tech Foundation provide support for our students and the college in crucial ways that otherwise could not happen.

No matter the amount, your gift will make a difference!

Foundation staff members would be happy to talk with you and provide transfer information needed for certain types of gifts. For more information, please see topics below or contact Tricia Vaughn at 336.734.7381 or pvaughn@forsythtech.edu.

Bequests

An outright bequest in your will to the Forsyth Tech Foundation can be a specified amount or a certain percentage after other specific bequests are fulfilled. Our bequest intention form helps us ensure your gift will be used in a way to best honor your wishes. It also informs us of your intended bequest so we may include you in our Legacy Society.

Gifts of Stocks or Securities

Gifts of stocks or securities support the College and may give added tax benefits to the donor. Speak with your financial advisor to learn more about the tax implications of your gift.

Electronic Transfer is the easiest way to transfer securities and stocks to Forsyth Tech. Please ask your broker to note your name on the transaction so we may recognize and record your gift appropriately.

The Forsyth Tech Foundation’s tax ID number is 56-1070364. For our current electronic transfer information and account number, please contact Bill Green, Executive Director of the Foundation, at 336.734.7520 or bgreen@forsythtech.edu.

Gifts from Retirement Accounts

Any gift from a retirement account that will count as part of an annual Required Minimum Distribution should be made to Forsyth Tech Community College, not to the Forsyth Tech Foundation. For more information please contact Tricia Vaughn at 336.734.7381 or pvaughn@forsythtech.edu.

Gift of Life Insurance

Making the Forsyth Tech Foundation one of the beneficiaries or the owner of a life insurance policy is a way to make a gift to the college without putting a burden on your present financial obligations.
