Cash and Pledges
Gifts can be made by cash, check or credit card. Gifts and pledges should be made using our Donation Form, or credit card gifts may be made online.
Securities (Stocks, Bonds, Mutual Funds)
Market conditions may have created an ideal giving opportunity for stocks and bonds, which you can transfer to the Tri-C Foundation with tax savings for you. For details, please call the Tri-C Foundation at 216-987-4868.
Gift of Education
Honor or memorialize someone important in your life by giving the Gift of Education. You can support scholarships by making a donation in another’s name for holidays, birthdays, weddings, graduations, or any other important occasion. The Tri-C Foundation acknowledges all gifts in writing, and will send a customized occasion card to your honoree.

If your employer, or your spouse’s employer, has a program that matches all or a part of qualifying donations, such a program can double or even triple the value of your gift. Check with your Human Resources department to see if your employer matches gifts.
Gifts in Kind
Some donors choose to make a gift of materials or equipment. If you are considering such a gift, please contact the Foundation.
You may give private, commercial or agricultural property to the Foundation. If you are considering such a gift, please contact the Foundation as early as possible so that we may jointly decide the best use of the property.
Works of art, valuable books, and/or furnishings are considered gifts of personal property. An appraisal will be required in specific situations for non-cash contributions. Before considering a donation of personal property, please contact the Foundation so that together we may determine the best use of such a gift.
Planned gifts are commitments that are arranged today but generally come to the Tri-C Foundation after your lifetime. Some examples include designating a gift in your will, or designating the Tri-C Foundation as a beneficiary of your life insurance policy. Your planned gift to the Tri-C Foundation helps to ensure Tri-C’s ability to deliver educational services and scholarships to our community far into the future, while matching your overall financial planning goals.

Establish a Scholarship Fund
Donors may establish a specially named and endowed scholarship fund as a tribute to an individual, a group, or in connection with a particular area of study at the College. Creating an endowed scholarship fund allows you to make a financial commitment to the College and to the students of our community, with an investment that will continue to give far into the future. Please call the Tri-C Foundation to discuss your interest in establishing an endowed scholarship fund, or contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org with your questions.
Sponsor an Event
A variety of events are held across Tri-C’s campuses and throughout the Greater Cleveland area, which draw large numbers of community members to enjoy a variety of educational community and arts programming that benefit the Tri-C Foundation. Events include the Presidential Scholarship Luncheon, Tri-C JazzFest Cleveland, and many others. Please call the Tri-C Foundation at 216-987-4868 or contact us at email@example.com to inquire about our events and related sponsorship opportunities.
