PERSONAL PROPERTY and GIFTS-IN-KIND
Contact the Foundation Office prior to delivery of gift to campus. The LBCC Foundation will accept Gifts-In-Kind if the item(s) are deemed appropriate and usable by the corresponding campus department. There may be limitations on campus for storage, usefulness for teaching opportunities, campus needs, etc.
Examples of property and gifts-in-kind include:
- Vehicles*, planes, boats, RVs, buses, etc.
- Works of art, crops, production materials, and other tangible items
- Horses and other livestock
Please note: If you value your Gift-In-Kind at $5,000 or more, this may impact your taxes and we suggest you seek professional IRS or tax preparation advice.
*Vehicles – The LBCC Foundation has partnered with Automotive Recovery Services (ARS). If the LBCC Automotive Technology Training Center (ATTC) is unable to utilize your particular vehicle, you can still make a difference and get a tax deduction. Simply call (800) 240-0160 to donate your vehicle for the benefit of the LBCC Foundation. ARS will arrange for a free vehicle pick-up and tow, will provide the donor with a tax receipt and will pass on any proceeds from auction to the LBCC Foundation.
