Non-cash Gifts

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. Examples include:

  • Gift baskets or gift certificates for products and services
  • Tickets (music, theater, 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
