Supporting Student Success
The generous contributions of our donors support student financial assistance, college capital projects and ongoing equipment needs. Development of these resources through ongoing support ensures current and future students have the best possible learning opportunities.
Types of donations and ways to give
Fleming College is committed to assisting donors in structuring their gifts to meet their personal objectives. Legacy giving, because of its flexibility and tax advantages, is increasingly a giving option of choice.
Our donors often give in memory or in honour of their friends and loved ones. When a donation is made we send out a card to the family or individual that is being honoured, acknowledging your generous donation. Your donation amount is kept in confidence unless you specifically request this information to be shared with the family.
The college welcomes and encourages donations of all kinds.
Gifts of Cash
Gifts of cash provide donors with many flexible options. Donations can be designated for a specific program or project, or they can be unrestricted. Donations without restrictions allow the college to respond quickly to new ideas, initiatives and needs.
Making an in-kind gift is a method in which to support Fleming without making an out of pocket monetary investment.
In-kind gifts take many forms - equipment, books, services and real estate are some common types of gifts.
Gifts of Securities
A gift of mutual funds or appreciated securities of publicly traded companies listed on a stock exchange allows you to claim your tax credit and to avoid any capital gains on the stock. You receive a double benefit as long as the stock itself is transferred to the college.
A named endowment fund, bearing your name or that of someone you wish to honour, provides you with the satisfaction of knowing that the income generated by your endowment will continue contributing to the work of the college in perpetuity. This type of fund provides an opportunity for you and your family and friends, to add to the fund on an ongoing basis. The continued fund growth allows more opportunity for students to benefit from your generosity and ensures the longevity of your legacy.
