How to Support the Casper College Foundation

How to Make a Gift
You can make a donation to The CC Foundation in a variety of ways, including cash, securities, real estate, or personal property. The Foundation can also help you with memorial gifts or honorariums, and process matching gifts. Gifts to the Foundation are tax-deductible as provided by law.
Cash or check gifts are the simplest way to give and offer a tax deduction for the full amount in the year in which you make contributions. Your cash gifts are deductible up to 50 percent of your adjusted gross income for the taxable year, but any excess is deductible over the next five years. Simply drop off a cash gift to the The Casper College Foundation or mail a check, payable to the Casper College Foundation to 125 College Drive, Casper, Wyoming. You may make an online donation via credit card. Please be aware that credit cards charge fees, so cash or check are preferable but not required. Installment payments via electronic funds transfer (EFT) from your checking account can also be set up calling our office at 307-268-2256 or contacting our Executive Director for the paperwork.
The best stocks to donate are those that have increased greatly in value, particularly those producing a low yield. By donating appreciated securities to CC Foundation, you avoid capital gains tax as well as receive a tax deduction for making a charitable gift. Gifts of stock are tax deductible at the full fair market value. If you have stock losses, sell the stock yourself to realize the loss and take the deduction for tax purposes. Then generate a charitable contribution deduction by donating the cash proceeds of the sale to the CC Foundation. For instructions and help making a securities transfer, please contact our Chief Financial Officer, Denise Bressler at 307-268-2215.
If you own property that is fully paid off and has appreciated in value, an outright gift may be the simplest solution. You can deduct the fair market value of your gift, avoid all capital gains taxes and remove that asset from your taxable estate. Please contact Paulann at our office at 307-268-2215 to discuss a gift of real estate.
Assets related to the educational mission of Casper College (books, art works, scientific or historical collections, etc.) generate tax deductions equal to the fair market value of the gift. For more information, please contact Paulann at 307-268-2215.
Many companies will match or even triple their employees' charitable giving with a gift of their own to institutions of higher education. Some also match or triple charitable contributions made by retirees or directors. Matching gifts are directed to the same college, program, or scholarship fund as was the employee's original gift. If you have the opportunity to secure corporate matching funds for Casper College, please mail your forms to:
Casper College Foundation
125 College Drive
Casper, WY 82601
or scan the documents and email it to Paulann
Memorials and Honorariums
A gift to education is a particularly meaningful way to pay tribute to someone special in your life. It even makes a distinctive anniversary or birthday gift for those who love Casper College. We are happy to notify honored designees or the family members of those remembered with your gifts, if you provide appropriate contact information when you make donations.
Fund for Excellence
Your donation goes to the “Areas of Greatest Need.” In some cases, it will be matched by the State of Wyoming or generous local donors who have issued challenges. You can direct where you want your money to go.
Scholarships and Programs
You may set up your own scholarship or program or add to existing funds or programs. The foundation funded $934,000 in scholarships this year to over 600 students, and provided $7,422,425 in institutional support.
Casper College has many awards for outstanding employees. If you would like to contribute to an existing award or create a new one, please contact Paulann at 307-268-2215.
Thank you for your support in making quality education happen!
