Ways for Alumni to Invest | Thomas Nelson Community College

Ways for Alumni to Invest

At this year’s Scholarship Luncheon, Ashleigh McCann and Kelsey Bullington met James and Virginia Taylor. Ashleigh and Kelsey are recipients of the James & Virginia Taylor Nursing and Dental Hygiene Scholarship.

Many of our alumni decide to become financial partners with the College by making tax-deductible donations to the Thomas Nelson Educational Foundation. Your investment, small and large, helps to eliminate financial barriers for future alumni. Make an investment today.

Impact Fund

Gifts to the Impact Fund are immediately applied to the College’s areas of greatest need, such as student emergencies, cutting edge classroom technology, and growing academic programs. This flexible funding allows administrators to strategically address emerging needs in all areas of the College and take advantage of opportunities as they arise.


The Educational Foundation offers 60 scholarships thanks to the generosity of our donors. However, students’ needs continue to rise. Through your gift, we can help promising students afford tuition and access life-changing opportunities.

Planned Giving

Making a planned gift, including bequests and life income gifts, to Thomas Nelson enables you to meet your financial goals while achieving your charitable aspirations.

Stocks & Securities

Your gift of long-term, appreciated securities can provide you with significant tax and financial benefits, such as bypassing capital gains taxes and providing a valuable income tax deduction, and strengthens our educational programs and services.


In-kind donations such as books, artwork, equipment, materials, and furniture can be used to enrich and support Thomas Nelson students’ experience.

Real Estate

By making a gift of real estate, you can leverage a significant asset for your benefit and the College’s. While supporting Thomas Nelson’s mission, you can save on taxes, increase your income, and/or reduce the burden of maintaining or selling your property. Gifts can be made with residential, commercial, or undeveloped real estate.
