Pledges

Pledges allow donors to commit to a gift of a specific amount and pay in installments over a five-year period. This enables them to give more generously than otherwise possible.

Memorial Gifts

We sometimes receive time sensitive requests regarding the wording to include in an obituary or funeral announcement. We suggest:  In lieu of flowers, contributions to Laurel Ridge Community College, in memory of ______________, would be appreciated. Please make checks payable to the Laurel Ridge Foundation, 173 Skirmisher Lane, Middletown, VA  22645, or donate online at laurelridge.edu/donate.

If there is an opportunity to meet by phone or in person before the announcement is posted, we would be glad to discuss in more detail how the family would like the Laurel Ridge Foundation to use the memorial donations. For example, there is often an interest in establishing a named scholarship or fund. Please contact the Laurel Ridge Foundation at 540-868-4089 or [email protected].

If we do not receive further direction from the family, the memorial donations will support our Cornerstone Fund, and the money will be used to support our most urgent needs.

Leave a Legacy with a Planned Gift

A legacy gift can take the form of a bequest in your will, donations of life insurance proceeds, structured gift annuities or trusts, or gifts of assets, such as real estate property or stock. The Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, and our federal tax ID number is 51-0247624.

Employee Payroll Deduction

Laurel Ridge employees can give through payroll deduction. It’s automated and easier than ever to make your contribution—and even small amounts add up fast.

Create a Scholarship

For many students, a scholarship is the deciding factor between the opportunity to attend college or the need to defer the dream of a college education. For a minimum gift of $1,000 you can fund an annual, named scholarship. Endowed scholarships, which will continue to help students in perpetuity and leave a lasting legacy for your family or organization, require a minimum contribution of $25,000. Learn More.

Gifts of Securities

Gifts of appreciated securities (stocks, bonds, mutual funds) can be a tax-efficient way to donate. The Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, and our federal tax ID number is 51-0247624.

We ask that the donor or financial representative contact Liv Heggoy with the Laurel Ridge Foundation so that we know the name of the donor, any restrictions on the use of the gift, and the expected date of transfer.

Instructions for making the transfer are provided in this document: Donation of Securities Instructions
