The Great Basin College Foundation


GBC Foundation Sage Logo graphic.The Great Basin College Foundation cultivates, stewards and manages resources from our communities for the benefit of the students and programs of Great Basin College.

Established in 1982, the Great Basin College Foundation is a separate non-profit entity. Our sole purpose is to support the students and mission of Great Basin College. The Foundation enjoys a position of national excellence and an exceptional fund-raising history, accepting donations on behalf of Great Basin College.

Support the welding lab expansion animation with Welder and Support text.We are embarking on a new Capital Campaign to help students fill the workforce need for more skilled welders in rural Nevada. Great Basin College approached the Nevada System of Higher Education for support to renovate and expand the current welding lab on the Elko campus. On June 4, 2021, Bill AB492 was signed, which authorizes and provides funding for certain projects of capital improvement including this one! The estimated cost of this public works project is $6.4 million dollars. Of that estimate, Great Basin College has committed a match of $600,000. When complete the additional 4,500 square feet will increase student capacity from 17 to 40.

You can support this project by becoming a sponsor. Find out more about the campaign!
