Gifts of Bonds, Stocks and Mutual Funds

Gifts of publicly traded securities, closely held stocks and mutual funds can not only benefit DMACC, but can also be structured in ways that will be extremely beneficial to you by minimizing taxes. If you are considering making a gift from your securities portfolio, it is important that you arrange for a direct transfer of your securities to DMACC and not sell (or instruct your broker to sell) the securities first. To assure a smooth transfer, please contact the DMACC Foundation at (515) 964-6229 or


Planned Gifts

Planned giving is an instrument that can reduce your taxable estate and create your DMACC legacy. By including DMACC in your estate plans, you deliver on a promise that DMACC’s values of excellence, learning, responsiveness, innovation, cultural understanding and mutual respect will continue for generations.

Once you make your planned gift, you become a member of the 1966 Society. The 1966 Society was created to honor those individuals who have pledged generous, lasting gifts to DMACC. The 1966 Society is composed of alumni and friends who support the College, at all financial levels, with their estate gifts. 

For information on making your planned gift, contact the DMACC Foundation at (515) 964-6229 or

Establishing a scholarship through the DMACC Foundation is one way you can assist students and leave a legacy to the College. It's also a very meaningful way to honor family and friends. As a scholarship donor, you choose the name of the scholarship as well as the criteria. Below is a guide to establishing a scholarship at the DMACC Foundation.

  1. Determine the level of support you wish to provide.
    • Annual scholarships begin at $1,000 and are funded on a year-by-year basis by the donor(s). The Foundation asks donors to make a five-year commitment when establishing a new annual scholarship.
    • Endowed scholarships support themselves in perpetuity. The initial gift is invested, and the scholarship awards are determined each year by the Foundation's Endowment Spending Policy.
    • The minimum investment for an endowed scholarship is $25,000.
    • Other scholarships may be awarded for one or two years from a specific donation.
  2. Determine the focus of your scholarship.
    • Foundation staff will assist you in developing the scholarship criteria. Criteria might include a specific program, academic standing or financial need.
    • Scholarships can be named in honor or memory of an individual or organization.
  3. Sign a scholarship agreement with the DMACC Foundation.
