Foundation Frequently Asked Questions

GBC Foundation Logo graphic.Welcome to our Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) page. Here are answers to some of the more common questions we receive about how we handle gifts to the Great Basin College Foundation.

Who Handles My Gift?

A gift made to a department or other GBC program is sent to the GBC Foundation per IRS codes for immediate deposit. The Foundation sends you a receipt/gift acknowledgement as soon as your gift has been received. Save these receipts for your tax records.

What if I Receive Goods or Services in Connection with My Gift?

The IRS requires that we inform you, via your gift receipt/acknowledgement, of the value of any goods or services you may have received along with the resulting value of your contribution.

What Do You Do with My Gift?

Your gift may be placed in an established fund, which is administered by a GBC fund administrator (a staff or faculty member). Gifts of appropriate size may be placed in a newly created fund that will accomplish your wishes.

Can I Give Something Besides Cash?

The foundation is equipped to handle many types of noncash gifts.* These include:

  • Real property:
    • The foundation accepts gifts of real estate.
  • Personal property:
    • The foundation accepts gifts of personal property, such as books, artwork, computers, boats, etc.

  • Wills and trusts:
