Annual Giving

Foundation Logo graphicUnrestricted support, referred to as “Annual Fund” dollars, is one of the most important fund-raising priorities for our college, as GBC has few other sources of flexible funding.

Annual Fund contributions are our “venture capital,” and allow GBC Foundation to act quickly to address campus needs, take advantage of special opportunities and support administrative costs related to raising private funds for the college.

Annual Fund

GBC Foundation raises annual funds from alumni, friends, and corporations in several ways, including direct-mail appeals, special events, including our yearly anticipated Dinner Dance, and the GBC Employee Campaign. Every year, donors contribute generously to make GBC the ultimate choice for higher education in rural Nevada.

Establishing or Contributing to an Existing Scholarship

Most students attending GBC benefit from some sort of financial assistance be it work study programs, Federal loans or grants, company paid tuition assistance or scholarships.Contributions to scholarship funds are really investments in the future of those students who receive them, and ultimately investments in the future of your community.

GBC Foundation General Scholarship Fund

This general scholarship fund gives GBCF the opportunity to offer support to students from different programs.


If you would like to make a one-time gift to a scholarship and have a specific program or focus of study in mind, there are many scholarships you may find of interest.

A Few Words on Establishing an Endowed Scholarship

You are also able to establish, with a minimum gift of $25,000, a named scholarship endowment fund. Additions to established endowment funds are always welcome.
