Strategies for Giving

Please join us in ensuring Kettering College’s mission and tradition of whole-person education in the 21st century. We can help you define your gift choices, and, depending on the gift arrangement, you can also:

• Increase your spendable income.
• Avoid capital gains taxes.
• Have a guaranteed income for life.
• Reduce your income taxes.

Gifts of Assets
The simplest way to support the mission of Kettering College is through cash gifts, which include stocks, bonds, and property—real estate, for example, or an automobile. Charitable deductions and tax benefits apply to these gifts.

Gifts by Will
Bequests—remembering Kettering College in your will—offer a double advantage: (1) the ability to give very generously without losing your assets during your lifetime, (2) philanthropic impact beyond your lifetime.

Life-Income Gifts
Fulfill your gift intent and establish income for life, simultaneously. Gift annuities, unlike charitable remainder trusts, offer guaranteed annual income.
