Make a Difference!

We want to make a difference to improve the lives of students here at Hartnell College and throughout Monterey County. Transforming lives is at the heart of our work, and we believe that goal is also important to you.

You can make an enormous difference during your lifetime without impacting your assets or cash flow. If you include the Hartnell College Foundation in your will, trust, or as a beneficiary of your retirement plan, your legacy will live on and ensure quality education for current and future Hartnell students. It’s easy to do, and we can help.

Please note that while your retirement plan benefits you, it can create tax problems for your heirs. The IRS will tax, as ordinary income tax, your heirs who inherit your IRA upwards of 40% to 60%. They must exhaust your IRA within ten years of inheriting it, which could be a significant income tax burden. Consider gifting your IRA to the Hartnell College Foundation and support your loved ones in more tax-friendly ways.

To learn more about your giving options and how to create your legacy masterpiece, please visit our site or connect with us.

Our very best!
