Gift Planning  


Planned Giving / Estate Gifts


Increasingly, donors are choosing to include TCC in their estate plans as a way to provide for the future of the college. In recognition of their legacy gift, our planned giving donors become members of the Godwin Legacy Society. Read about one of our society members. Gift planning is a delicate process for our donors and their families and we value their interests as they choose the best planned giving option. Planned gifts include life-income opportunities and other arrangements that are mutually beneficial to the donor and TCC.

Each type of plan has its own tax consequences, but many will help you make plans to transfer your assets to a charity and/or family members.  Planned giving can help you achieve your philanthropic goals as you enjoy one or more of these benefits:

  • current income tax charitable deduction;
  • avoidance of capital gains tax;
  • avoidance of estate taxes on assets transferred in the planned gift;
  • guaranteed income for you, your spouse, or other loved ones;
  • increased lifetime income;
  • income in retirement years; and
  • tax-exempt income.

These are only a few of options to consider in your gift planning. For more information about gift planning at TCC, please contact Lara M.S. Overy by phone at (757) 822-1080, by email at, or by mail at 121 College Place, Suite 616, Norfolk, VA 23510.
