AHC Graduates

The Allan Hancock College Foundation is committed to keeping the door of opportunity open – the same door that has benefited more than eight decades of alumni. We invite you to help us make the tradition of creating opportunity part of your lasting legacy.

Update Your Will and Make a Difference for Generations of Students to Come

A simple directive in your will can make a difference for generations of students to come. 

If you have not already, consider these steps: 

  • Make sure you have an up-to-date will or living trust that reflects your charitable objectives. Without these documents, you surrender control of your property and assets to the courts.

  • Contact your financial advisor (a lawyer, or accountant, or financial planner) and ask for help in establishing a charitable gift. The tax code changes frequently. Always check for recent developments before the completion of your estate plans.
  • Think beyond cash—you can leave stocks, real estate, insurance policies, and personal property to the college 
  • Consider making the foundation a beneficiary of your life insurance, pension plan or IRA.  
  • If you wish to inform the Allan Hancock College Foundation that you have made it a beneficiary of your will, please contact our office at 925-2004.

Donor Testimonial PhotoEd Murray’s children began their college careers at AHC. Ed himself spent years working to establish and grow the scholarship opportunities available to the college’s students. Thanks to a properly executed estate plan, he now takes pride in knowing his legacy will benefit the college – and the community – for generations to come.

Donor Testimonial PhotoA long-time supporter of Allan Hancock College, Sue Sword is passionate about the value of education and the opportunities it provides. She feels the college should continue to grow in order to meet the needs of its students in technology, industrial skills, and preparing to transfer.
Sue’s belief that “AHC is so important because it provides education and training to support the future growth and prosperity of all of us” led her to create a bequest to the Allan Hancock College Foundation.

Donor Testimonial PhotoDan and Peggy Blough believe in investing in their community. “Educating our future leaders makes a lasting difference for our community. The college provides an important step to higher education and workforce training. The Allan Hancock College Foundation is a great way to support that and to give back to the community. It’s really an investment in the future of our community.”
