Interested in supporting the students and programs at Normandale Community College?

Contributions to the Normandale Community College Foundation advance the mission and activities of Normandale Community College. Your gift shapes the future of the college by supporting students, programs, and services. Giving offers you the opportunity to strengthen a vital community resource while offering a tax deduction. A well-planned gift can help you achieve your financial and charitable objectives as well as realize personal goals.

Choosing the right way to give depends on your personal situation. Here are some options to consider. Further discussion with a member of our staff may help to find the right option for you.


Cash gifts provide funds for student scholarships, projects and activities as well as future efforts.

Gifts can be made as a memorial or as a tribute to an individual. An acknowlegement is sent to the recipient or family on your behalf. Donation amounts are kept confidential.

Corporate Matching Gift

More than 1000 parent companies and corporate foundations in the US currently match employee gifts to nonprofit organizations such as the Normandale Community College Foundation. Under corporate matching gift programs, gifts made by a company's eligible employee to a nonprofit organization meeting the company's guidelines are matched with company or corporate funds. Usually a donor completes the company's matching gift form and sends it along with their donation to the Normandale Community College Foundation. To learn more about your company's employee matching gift program, please check with your company's Human Resources department.


Securities can be one of the most advantageous ways to make a gift. The value of the donation for tax puposes will be determined on the date of the transfer to the NCC Foundation. You avoid federal capital gains tax that would otherwise be due on the sale of the assets.

Real Estate and Personal Property

Tangible personal property such as art, books, or equipment related to the mission of Normandale Community College are tax deductible (at fair market value). Consider donating property - before you sell it - to the Normandale Community College Foundation. You'll avoid capital gains tax and realize a charitable deduction for the full fair market value.

Gifts Made Through Your Will

A bequest in your will naming the Normandale Community College Foundation as a recipient of a portion of your estate may produce sizeable savings to heirs in income and estate taxes.


You can contribute to either one of the currently existing endowments:

  • Normandale Community College Endowment
  • Normandale Japanese Garden Endowmen

You may also establish a named endowment of your own. A gift of $20,000 will establish an endowment in your name or another name you select.


Life insurance is a potential gift. For a policy that is paid up, your charitable contribution is the cash value of the policy. Other policies can be given while you continue to pay the premiums, resulting in income tax deductions when the Normandale Community College Foundation is named both owner and fiduciary. Also, a new policy on your life naming Normandale Community College Foundation as beneficiary guarantees a future gift as well.


Normandale Community College Foundation staff members are available to meet with you, your family and your financial and legal advisors to discuss the gift option that suit your needs.

Contact the Foundation Office at (952)358-8147.
