Corporate Matching Gifts
Many companies match household giving. If your company has a matching gift program, simply request a form from your company. Once you complete the form, you can send it to the CGCC Foundation Office.
Oregon Cultural Trust Matching Gifts
We wish to remind you that CGCC Foundation is a partner with the Oregon Cultural Trust. By matching your donation to CGCC Foundation with a gift to Oregon Cultural Trust, you may receive an Oregon State tax credit. Please consult your tax advisor.
Establishing a pledge is another way to make a gift to CGCC. To make a pledge, you determine your pledge amount and frequency of payments. CGCC Foundation will send pledge reminders each time a payment is due.
To make a pledge, please contact CGCC Foundation Office.
Gift In Kind
You can make a gift to CGCC Foundation in the form of gifts in kind or tangible personal property, such as artwork, musical instruments, books, computers, equipment and furniture, among other items. Acceptance of personal property and your subsequent tax deduction will depend on the type of item you wish to contribute and whether CGCC will have the appropriate use for it. In some cases, the value of the gift and tax-deduction qualification will require an independent appraisal of value.
For questions concerning the gift in kind, please contact CGCC Foundation Office.
In Memory or In Honor Of

If you wish to make a gift to CGCC that will last in perpetuity, you should consider making a gift to the CGCC Foundation general endowment fund or creating your own endowment. The CGCC Foundation general endowment fund is used to support the area of greatest need at the College.
There is no minimum amount for gifts to the CGCC Foundation general endowment fund. These gifts are added to the overall CGCC Foundation general endowment investment pool. You may also establish your own named scholarship endowment. The income of your own endowment fund is used for purposes decided upon by you, the donor. We encourage you to share your interests and wishes with us so we can help you in this process.
For questions on contributing through an endowment, please contact Steph Hoppe in the Foundation Office at 541-506-6113 or su.ro1369167009.cc.c1369167009cgc@e1369167009ppohs1369167009.
Gifts of Securities
You can contribute a gift of appreciate securities to CGCC Foundation; however, these gifts require special handling to ensure you receive proper credit for your gift.
You may receive several benefits from contributing appreciated securities. One benefit may include avoiding capital gains tax. Any gain is taxable if you sell stock or mutual fund shares yourself, but it is not taxable if you transfer ownership to the College Foundation. Charitable deduction for federal income tax purposes is based on the full, fair-market value of the shares on the date the gift is made. And, you may receive gift credit for the full, fair market value of the shares, but the cost to you is only your original purchase price.
Gifts of Stocks
You can receive significant tax advantages for choosing to transfer highly appreciated (long-term) securities to CGCC Foundation as a charitable gift. The value of your gift depends upon the market price of your assets when they are given.
Gifts of Real Estate
CGCC Foundation accepts gifts of real property. This gift may be all or part of your interest in almost any type of property, including your personal or recreational residence, a farm or ranch, a commercial building, subdivision lots or undeveloped parcels of land. Your real estate contribution can take the form of an outright gift, life income gift or life tenancy gift. You may make a gift of your home and continue to live there through your lifetime and that of your spouse, resulting in both significant income tax and estate tax savings.
