2011 OTC Annual Report

Contributing to the OTC Foundation

Making a charitable gift to the OTC Foundation is an important and personal decision. The satisfaction of giving comes from knowing that you are investing in the lives of individuals, as well as businesses and industries that benefit from an OTC education.

We invite you to invest in the students at OTC by considering the following ways to make a difference. From a tax point of view, gifts of property may be more advantageous than cash gifts because you can make a larger gift at less cost. The information provided below may be useful, but you should not consider it legal or tax advice. You should contact your attorney, tax advisor, or accountant for details. Only you can decide when and how best to contribute.

Ways to Give

  • Unrestricted Contributions: Contributions can be made to the area of greatest need for student support at the College.
  • Restricted Contributions: Contributions can be made to a specific area of the College, such as a departmental, named or endowed scholarship fund.
  • Named Gifts: Contributions can be made to establish a scholarship in two ways:
    • Donors can give an annual gift of $1,000 or more per year for multiple years. This may be done in one's own name or to honor another individual.
    • Donors can establish an endowed fund with a minimum initial investment of $10,000. The fund can be in your name, the names of you and your spouse or the name of another family member, friend or colleague. Each investment will support Ozarks Technical Community College students or programs for eternity.
