Becoming a Member
Membership in the Ozark Legacy Society is available to friends who let us know they've given to the college in one of the following ways:
Wills: You may include a bequest to Ozark Christian College in your Last Will and Testament. A will allows you to choose your beneficiaries, executors, guardians for minor children, and support the long-term ministry of OCC.
Trusts: You may include a gift to Ozark Christian College in your trust. Revocable living trusts can avoid probate and offer several estate planning benefits. Irrevocable charitable trusts can provide an immediate tax deduction, income for life, and a substantial gift to OCC.
Retirement Plans: Retirement accounts (IRA, 401k, 403b, etc), pensions, and other investments can name Ozark Christian College as a beneficiary. Since many of these funds are taxable, they are excellent ways to lower your taxes and accomplish your charitable intentions.
Life Estates: You may contribute property to OCC and retain the right to use the property during your lifetime. For example, you could give your residence to the college while reserving the right to live in it for the rest of your life. You will receive a charitable tax deduction for the remainder value of the property.
Life Insurance: You may name Ozark Christian College as one of your beneficiaries of a life insurance policy. Alternatively, you could transfer ownership of the policy to the college and receive a charitable deduction for your payment of the premiums.
A Gift from Your Will or Trust Can Make a Lasting Difference!
