Jeff McClean will present ’Avenues for Charitable Giving‘ Feb. 12 on Blinn’s Brenham campus

Renowned Houston attorney Jeff McClean has made a long-standing commitment to philanthropy. On Feb. 12, he’ll discuss his wealth of knowledge during a luncheon on the Blinn College – Brenham campus.
The event, sponsored by the Blinn Foundation, is free and will be held from 11:45 a.m. – 1 p.m. in the College’s Student Center (map).

McClean—an attorney for FizerBeck who specializes in areas of estate planning and probate, along with practice in tax exempt organizations and charitable giving—will present “Avenues for Charitable Giving,” which will discuss valuable philanthropic opportunities that can be used to support local communities.

“This is a good opportunity for people—attorneys, CPAs, financial advisers—who are interested in charitable giving,” McClean said. “We’ll also go over updates on current law and state planning techniques that incorporate charitable giving.”

Attorneys who attend the luncheon will earn credit towards their continuing legal education.

Following McClean’s presentation, Blinn College District President Harold Nolte, Foundation Chairman William Betts and Blinn Board of Trustees Chairman Douglas Borchardt will provide insight into how the College supports its local community.

The Blinn Foundation supports programs and activities that enhance the quality of education for Blinn College students and expand the educational opportunities for the entire community. While raising funds is an important function, the Foundation also seeks to heighten community awareness of the mission and accomplishments of the College and to promote excellence in education.

Since its inception in 2000, the Foundation has raised more than $13 million for Blinn. Those funds have been used to help launch major construction projects across Blinn’s campuses, including the A.W. Hodde, Jr. Technical Education Center, the J. Hal and Allyne Machat Music Facility, the W.J. “Bill” Rankin Agricultural Complex and the Bert and Mae Dean Wheeler Residence Hall.

An additional $1 million has been spent purchasing classroom equipment and supplies requested by Blinn faculty.
