The Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College Foundation is preparing for its Annual Fundraiser. Each year, the foundation raises money to fund scholarships and provide other resources that allow MGCCC students to be successful and have the best possible college experience. Your support is needed to make the 2024 fundraiser the best one yet!

In addition to an exquisite dinner and an exclusive silent auction, we are thrilled to announce that Chet Landry will serve as the emcee and perform with Mayors FoFo Gilich and Billy Hewes. They will join our sensational MGCCC Jazz Band, adding a touch of local charm to our formal affair.

We look forward to celebrating with you soon!

Bequests, Trust Agreements and Investment Securities

Bequests allow you to memorialize a loved one by establishing, through your will, a scholarship in his or her name. A part of your estate or a particular piece of property may be invested in this way. Trusts of many types may be worked out. Your attorney is the best person to advise you on the kind of trust to establish and the tax advantages. Stocks and bonds held for more than six months may be the easiest and most advantageous way to invest. If the securities have gained in value, you can avoid the capital gains tax and also claim a deduction for the fair market value. If the securities have depreciated, you may sell them and invest the proceeds, since you can take a tax loss on the drop in value and also deduct the proceeds as a charitable contribution.
