Heritage Circle

What is Planned Giving?

Planned giving provides you with the opportunity for maximizing tax benefits while making it possible for you to give a charitable gift that will benefit our students, academic programs, and major projects. Individuals and families may become members of the Heritage Circle by committing one or more of the special gifts outlined below. By including South Arkansas Community College in your estate plans, regardless of your income level or age, you can make a tremendous difference for generations to come.

What are the benefits?

This type of major gifting is a versatile investment with many benefits:

  • Increase your current income or secure a retirement income for you or your loved ones.

  • Reduce or eliminate income taxes

  • Pass on your assets to your loved ones with reduced estate taxes.

  • Ensure the future of South Arkansas Community College.

Why should I make a planned gift to SouthArk?

Your support can create a legacy that will ensure continued resources for SouthArk and provide a strong education for our region and local economy. Your gifts will allow us to educate and build a strong workforce, create lifelong opportunities, and touch families’ lives across south Arkansas. Your support will enable us to continue our mission of affordable education to our citizens for many years to come.

By working with the SouthArk Foundation staff, you can develop a financial giving plan that incorporates your personal and philanthropic goals, while also supporting education. Your personalized gift plan can support your financial goals while providing the maximum tax benefits
