Honor and Memorial Giving
Thank you for considering a memorial gift to Great Basin College Foundation.  We greatly appreciate your support. Donors typically make gifts in memory of a deceased family member, friend or co-worker.

Each gift helps Great Basin College Foundation meet our mission “to enhance the overall mission of Great Basin College as an institution of higher learning, achieved primarily through cultivation and management of fiscal resources, and promotion of the College’s image throughout the region”.
