The Gift of Education Changes Lives

Education changes the paradigm of families forever, and helps ensure the success of our future workforce. A deferred gift through your estate or will is a simple way to create a legacy and extend your support of SPC and our students after your lifetime.

Your planned gift ensures a bright future for St. Petersburg College students and may save you income, capital gains, gift and/or estate taxes.

Donors and friends of SPC who provide for the college in their will or estate are included in the Helen K. Leslie Legacy Society. Helen Leslie was an SPC alumna and combined her education, passion, and talent to make a significant impact in our community. She was a huge champion for SPC throughout her career, both financially and through volunteer service. The St. Petersburg College Foundation established this legacy society to recognize Helen Leslie for her visionary support to the college through her estate plan.  Like Helen Leslie, members of the Helen K. Leslie Legacy Society serve as a model for others considering financial commitments to SPC.

If you have already made provisions to support St. Petersburg College in your will or living trust, we thank you and encourage you to notify us of your intent and become a member of the Helen K. Leslie Legacy Society.

To learn how your planned gift can meet your financial objectives while supporting the work of the College and the aspirations of students, contact Deborah Swink at or call 727-614-7044.
