Foundation FAQ's

GBC Foundation Sage Logo graphic.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?

The Great Basin College Foundation is happy to accept gifts for Great Basin College programs/departments. Per IRS codes for immediate deposit, we deposit the gift into our accounts and provide the funding to the school in a separate transaction. The Foundation sends a gift acknowledgement as soon as your gift has been received. Please 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 My Company Match my Gift?

Many employers will match charitable gifts from their employees. You can double or even triple your gift using a corporate match. Most employers will require you report your donation and/or provide a copy of your gift receipt to make their matching contribution on your behalf. Information about matching gifts is generally available from your employer’s Human Resources department.

What Can I do to Serve the Next Generation?

Can I Give Something Besides Cash?
