Leave a Lasting Legacy

“Your donations are like seeds, the good seeds- the seeds that you plant in my life and in other students’ lives will forever be appreciated for generations to come.” Eliwaja Ifuja, Class of 2017

The Hartford Hall Society honors individuals who have chosen to create a legacy through bequests, endowments, or other estate gifts to the Westchester Community College Foundation.  These might include such instruments such as trusts or charitable gift annuities.  Legacy gifts help to ensure that the college will have the resources to provide quality education for future generations.

Establishing a legacy gift entitles you to membership in the Hartford Hall Society, the recognition circle for our forward-thinking friends who have named Westchester Community College in their estate plans.  All Hartford Hall Society members are invited to an annual members-only Hartford Hall Society Recognition Tea.  Each new member receives a membership certificate and a beautiful, specially designed pin to spread the word about Westchester Community College. 

We recommend that you consult with your own tax advisor before making any significant financial decisions to make sure that they are in the best interest of you and your family. Suggested bequest language is: “I give and bequeath to Westchester Community College Foundation, Valhalla, NY, __________________ (insert dollar amount, percentage of estate or residuary, description of securities or property, etc.) to be used for its general purposes.”  Our tax ID number is 23-7050397.
