The Northampton County Community College Foundation gratefully accepts gifts for the benefit of Northampton Community College, whether made outright, in trust, or by bequest. We encourage you to use the sample language provided below when you create a bequest for the Foundation. Also, while it is not required, we ask that you send us a copy of that portion of your will naming the Foundation as beneficiary. This serves three purposes: first, it ensures that the Foundation will be able to use your bequest as you intend; second, it allows the Foundation to plan its future with greater confidence; and third, when you provide the Foundation with a copy of your bequest, it qualifies you for membership in the Foundation’s Heritage Society. All correspondence will be held in strict confidence.
