Planned Giving

GBC Foundation Sage Logo graphic.In planned giving, benefits to the donor may be immediate, while the actual transfer of assets may be deferred.

We know that your primary interest is making a gift that will benefit Great Basin College students and programs. Careful thought and consideration should be given to planning your charitable gifts. We always welcome an outright cash gift to meet your philanthropic goals, however, we also recognize that different people have different financial concerns and an outright gift may not be the best choice. Planned gifts are normally arranged in consultation with a donor’s estate or financial planners. We are happy to talk with you and your advisors to arrange a gift that will align with your giving needs.

The easiest way to make a bequest to the Great Basin College Foundation is through your will or living trust. You can list a specific dollar amount, a particular asset, such as securities or real estate, leave a percentage of your estate, or the residual of your estate, after providing for loved ones.

Two of the most common types of bequests are shown as examples below:

Specific Amount of Asset: I give, devise, and bequeath to the Great Basin College Foundation, the sum of $_____ [or a description of the specific asset] for its general purposes.

Remainder of Estate: I give, devise, and bequeath to the Great Basin College Foundation, all [or state the fraction or percentage] of the rest, residue, and remainder of my estate, both real and personal, for its general purposes.

The Advantages of Planned Giving

  • Providing gift plans that benefit you and your family
  • Bringing immediate and deferred tax advantages to both you and your heirs
  • Having a meaningful impact on GBC Foundation and our goals and interests, beyond your own lifetime and far into the future
  • Opportunity to be included in our Legacy Society

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. Please consult your attorney or tax professional, before planning or making a gift.
