Audrey E. Perry
Audrey Perry was a former educator, business person, and volunteer, as well as a former MCCC Trustee. She felt it important to leave a gift to MCCC as an extension of her support to those in need. Mrs. Perry was the first donor to establish a charitable gift annuity with The Foundation at MCCC. The charitable gift annuity enabled her to leave a legacy while being guaranteed a fixed income for life. As a retiree and a widow, she depended on this monthly income throughout the remainder of her life, while at the same time receiving an immediate income tax charitable deduction and a partial capital gains tax savings at the time of her donation.
“I have been a strong advocate for people’s rights, especially children and the elderly. Having attended a junior college, I realize the service a community college provides to this group. Therefore, MCCC became one of my financial endeavors. My goal is to aid others in meeting their goals through educational experiences.”
