The Heritage Club honors those who have included a gift to Cabrillo College in their estate plans. Though Cabrillo does not have to be told of a bequest, it is useful for planning purposes to know that a gift is anticipated, and it is often helpful to discuss with donors in advance both the structuring of a gift and whether it will achieve the donor’s goals. Additionally, we like to acknowledge the generosity of donors who remember Cabrillo in their will.

Gift plans create opportunities for both our donors and Cabrillo College. Determining what gift is right for you is just as important as making the gift. There are many options from which you can choose. The correct plan for you balances what you wish to accomplish for yourself, your family, and your charitable interests in your overall estate and financial plans.

  • Would you like to have a Gift Planning representative contact you about options available?  request information.
  • If you have already arranged for a bequest or other planned gift, we would like to honor your support; please notify us

fred and linda mcphersonFred and Linda McPherson were among the first students to attend Cabrillo College. Since then, they have generously contributed their time, enthusiasm, and financial support to the college. The couple decided to extend their legacy of giving by including the Cabrillo College Foundation in their wills to ensure that students in need get the support necessary to pursue their academic goals.

Over the years, the college has had tremendous growth, strong leadership, and graduated students who have made significant contributions to the community. Fred says, “All these things make you proud of your community and make you want to show your appreciation by giving back.”
