I choose Penn College as the primary recipient of my educational contributions because I have come to recognize that education focused on secure employment, a mission at which the college excels, provides the greatest benefit to the student, the community and the commonwealth.

Giving Options


Make a significant commitment to help further our mission. A charitable gift through your estate, such as a will or living trust, is one of the most popular and flexible ways you can support the College.

Charitable Gift Annuity

Make a gift that benefits students and you. You can transfer cash or property to Penn College and enjoy fixed payments to you for life at a rate based on your age.

IRA Charitable Rollover

Satisfy your required minimum distribution and make an immediate impact on our students. Those 70 ½ and older may make tax-free gifts up to $100,000 per year to Penn College directly from your IRA.

The Pillar Society

The Pillar Society was established in 2006 to recognize individuals who have demonstrated their commitment to Pennsylvania College of Technology by naming the college or the Penn College Foundation as the ultimate beneficiary of a planned gift. These planned gifts can include a bequest provision in their will or trust, a charitable gift annuity, a gift of life insurance or retirement plan assets, or other deferred gifts.
