Leaving a Legacy

"My life is a blessing. I have been fulfilled by seeing challenges as opportunities to become a better person tomorrow than I am today. My greatest joy was providing and caring for my wife, Jocelyn. Now that she is gone, I have chosen to express my gratitude for a great life and give back to the community by helping kids—kids are our future. I can only imagine how many lives will be touched with my planned gift to Salt Lake Community College."

-- Chris Gardiner
Legacy Society member


The Legacy Society is an extraordinary group of philanthropists committed to ensuring that Salt Lake Community College remains a community anchor in higher education excellence for future generations.

SLCC Legacy Society members include all individuals who provide support for the College through life income gifts, wills and estate plans. These individuals share a deep connection to SLCC and vision for building the College's future.

As a Legacy Society member, your gift matters. Thanks to committed benefactors like you, our diverse student body will continue to have access to higher education and therefore the opportunity to become contributing community members. Your gift will advance the vision and mission of SLCC by supporting endowment growth, scholarships, capital improvements or a host of college programs and student services.
