Cash and Pledges

When you make a multi-year pledge commitment to the Foundation, it helps to sustain funding and DCCCD’s service to students. Indicate on the Foundation gift form the frequency at which you wish to make your gift. You can specify annually, semi-annually, or quarterly. Pledges can be made up to five years.

Charitable Gift Planning

Planned giving, also known as estate planning, creates a blueprint of your assets and your family's financial future after you've passed away. It determines who will inherit your assets and in what amounts, how they will be disbursed, and even how much your estate may owe in federal income taxes and administrative costs.

Through planned giving, you can make a lasting impact on tomorrow's students and ensure the assets you leave behind are well-secured for a cause that you care about.

The philanthropic leadership of those individuals who have made planned gifts to the Dallas County Community Colleges is recognized through the Bill J. Priest Legacy Society.

Memorial and Honor Gifts

To honor a loved one in a lasting way, memorial or honor contributions may be sent to the DCCCD Foundation in his or her name.


Deferring payments to the Foundation in lieu of honoraria gives you another way to support students without spending a single penny. If a sponsoring organization wants to give you an honorarium for speaking or making an appearance at an event, you may have it donated to any of our funds.


To donate materials or equipment to one of our education programs, begin by contacting the DCCCD Foundation or the academic dean of the program area. Examples include books, equipment, tools and machinery. 

Stocks, Real Estate and Gifts of Property

The DCCCD Foundation welcomes gifts of appreciated stocks and securities, real estate and personal property. 

Matching Gifts

You can double or even triple the value of your donation with matching gifts. Check with your Human resources department to see if your employer or your spouse’s employer has a program that matches qualifying donations.
