A non-cash gift, also called an in-kind gift (or gift-in-kind), is a non-monetary contribution of personal property or professional services that benefit Lane in a variety of ways.
In-kind gifts can typically be split into two different categories: those used for educational purposes by a specific program and those used for fundraising purposes.
In-Kind Gifts Used For Educational Purposes
One of the biggest costs for the college is the need for upgraded equipment in our dozens of professional/technical programs. Your gift of equipment has immediate impact on our instructional capability. From culinary arts to nursing, from an engine for the diesel program to a potter's wheel for an art class, college programs welcome donor support.
Talk with the department to which your donation would be directed to discover how you or your company can become a benefactor to one of our 45 career programs. Here are examples of equipment that has been donated in the past:
- Up-to-date electronics and photographic equipment
- Vehicles, motors
- Diesel engines, airplanes, scrap metal, tools and machinery
- Culinary tools and equipment
- Medical, dental, and lab equipment
- Sports and exercise equipment
- Library course books and subscriptions
In-Kind Gifts Used For Fundraising Purposes
The Lane Community College Foundation also welcomes items that can be auctioned off during fundraising events such as the Foundation's signature event, the Annual Harvest Dinner & Auction. Examples include:
- Gift baskets or gift certificates for products and services
- Tickets (music, theatre, sports events, travel, etc.)
- Vacation home and rental property at various times throughout the year
- Use of facilities, food, beverages, or decoration for fundraising events
- Event sponsorships and cause-related marketing
Every gift makes a difference and brings our students closer to achieving their dreams. Thank you for making a difference!
