Non-cash Giving

GBC Foundation Sage Logo graphic.An in-kind donation is a gift of tangible personal property, such as machinery, books, computers, etc. Services and volunteer time do not qualify as in-kind donations under this policy. Great Basin College Foundation coordinates all donations to Great Basin College, including in-kind donations.

In-kind gifts to Great Basin College must be directed through the Great Basin College Foundation. College employees or Board members who receive offers of equipment, property or services mustGBC non-cash giving graphic. consult the Foundation office at 775.327.2382. Additionally, the donor must complete our In-Kind Giving Form prior to gift acceptance.

These gifts are subject to acceptance by the Executive Director of the Foundation and/or the Foundation’s Development Committee.

Foundation staff considers several issues before accepting an in-kind gift:

  • Does the college have a need for the donated item?
  • Does the gift obligate the Foundation/College to financial commitments in excess of budgeted items or other obligations disproportionate to the use of the gift? These could include, but are not limited to environmental remediation, upkeep expenses, insurance liabilities, and display, delivery, or space requirements for storage or exhibition.

Gift Appraisals (Federal Tax Documentation)

All charitable contributions require various types of documentation to meet institutional and IRS requirements. In-kind donations involve more extensive documentation than contributions of cash. Neither the Foundation nor the College places a value on donations for federal tax purposes. When in-kind gifts are given to the Foundation with the intent of the donor to receive a tax deduction, it is the responsibility of the donor, not the Foundation, to obtain an appraisal of the gift for tax purposes. Internal Revenue Service policy does not allow the charity issuing the receipt to become involved in the appraisal process. Please complete our In-Kind Giving Form prior to gift acceptance.

Note to Our Donors

Your gift to the Great Basin College Foundation may affect your financial situation. We do not provide legal or financial advice. Consult your attorney or tax professional, before planning or making a gift.
