Planned Giving

Planned Giving

Planned or deferred gifts allow ACCESS College Foundation to extend its programs beyond the current year's annual support–they provide local students with opportunities for higher education well into the future. These special commitments are a simple way to make all the difference to tomorrow's students as it helps ACCESS make a lasting impact on generations to come.

If you would like to support ACCESS through our Planned (deferred) Giving Program, there are several gift arrangements to choose from.

Your planned gift options include:

  • Bequests in Will
  • Gifts of Stock, Securities, or Appreciated Property
  • Gift of Life Insurance Policy
  • Beneficiary Designation of Life Insurance
  • Beneficiary Designation on Retirement Assets

Did you know? Arranging a planned gift for ACCESS makes you a member of our Batten Legacy Society. The Batten Legacy Society welcomes as members donors who make a planned gift to ACCESS–regardless of size. The generosity of planned giving donors strengthens opportunities for ACCESS students and their families.
