Legacy gifts provide the foundation for Portland Community College Foundation’s work. These gifts allow you to take care of your family, provide for gifts to loved ones, and include a charitable gift for Portland Community College Foundation. We can help you find the best way to make your gift, and perhaps help you to make a larger gift than you thought possible.
