In-kind Gifts

Academic programs at Gateway alert the Foundation to their “wish lists” of equipment and materials that will be of benefit to their courses and students.

Please see our College Equipment Wishlist for details about currently wished for equipment.

What is an in-kind gift?
Property contributed to Gateway Technical College and/or the Gateway Foundation for use by the College. Property includes vehicles, real estate, business inventory, equipment, livestock, supplies, clothing, or household items. Donors of gifts in-kind can generally receive a tax deduction equal to the fair market value of the property at the time of the contribution.

What is not an in-kind gift?
Donors cannot deduct as charitable contribution any gift to a specific individual the value of their time or services, or contributions from which they may benefit.

To facilitate the acceptance of an in-kind gift, the following form can be forwarded to the individual accepting the gift on behalf of the College at the time of the gift.
