Different ways you can make a gift: What's easiest for you?

Are you interested in joining the SFCC supporter family? (We sincerely hope so!) Then you have a menu of options.

(By the way, if none of these options works for you, talk to us. We want to meet your special needs.)

  • Cash Gifts: Make a donation to Santa Fe Community College Foundation by check (made payable to SFCC Foundation); or by credit card, by calling (505) 428-1855.
  • Stocks or Bonds: Appreciated stocks and bonds can be used to make an outright gift or to endow a scholarship. Using appreciated securities to make a gift allows you to avoid paying capital gains tax on its appreciation. You will need to contact your stockbroker to make this gift to the SFCC Foundation. Contact Deborah Boldt, at (505) 428-1704 or deborah.boldt@sfcc.edu, to obtain a copy of our wire instructions, which has our routing and DTC number.
  • In-Kind: Donate art, books, equipment, vehicles or other property. Please check with us before making such a gift to ensure that your gift meets our needs and your objectives.
  • IRA Charitable Rollover: Donors age 70.5 or older are eligible to move up to $100,000 from their IRAs directly to a qualified charity such as SFCC Foundation without having to pay income taxes on the money. (This gift is not tax deductable.) Qualified distributions must be made by December 31 of a given tax year. To make this gift, contact your plan administrator to initiate the transfer. See below for our name, address, and federal tax identification number.
