How to Contribute

The Gilbert Education Foundation is only successful through the generous support of friends and supporters of the Gilbert Community School District.  To continue our legacy of enhancing quality education for all, we continue to need your help.  Your commitment of time, talents, and financial resources will help to carry out our mission.

The primary source of funding for the Foundation comes from private donations, gifts, Rock Hop contributions, and contributions tailored to a passion of your choice.  The Foundation has received a tax exempt 501 (c)(3) status. This non-profit status offers tax benefits for individuals interested in tax-deductible donations, estates, and memorials.

Secure Your Legacy

Establishing your own named charitable fund does not require great wealth and it isn’t complicated. You have the opportunity to distribute gifts during your lifetime or to leave a lasting legacy – or both.

Through the Foundation, you can help create opportunities for students that reach beyond the regular budget limitations of the school system. Your support will be an investment in the future of our children, our schools, and in Gilbert itself.

Your tax deductible gifts to the Gilbert Education Foundation may be made in a variety of ways, including:

  • Annual Gift - An amount pledged to be given for a specific period of time.
  • Direct Gift - Cash, stocks, bonds, annuities, real estate, trusts, mutual funds, gifts-in-kind 
  • Company Matching Gift - Your employer may have a matching gift program that can increase your donation.
  • Estate - A donation through an estate
  • Tribute/Memorial Gift
  • Endowment Gift via Story County Community Foundation 
  • Expendable Gift
  • Special Project Gift - Donation for a special project tailored to a passion of your choice
  • Scholarships
  • Annual Rock Hop Contribution
