B-5: Acceptance of Gifts and Donations

Adoption Date: 02/17/92  |  Revision Date: 06/29/98  |  Revision Date: 08/26/08

The College President, or designee, shall be authorized by the Board of Trustees to accept and acknowledge appropriate gifts/donations to the College so long as the purpose for which the gift/donation is tendered is consistent with the needs of the College.

The President shall also be authorized to refuse an inappropriate gift/donation to the College if it is determined to discriminate against or be prejudicial to persons of any race, color, religion, national origin, age, gender, disability, ancestry, marital status, military service, current physical condition, unfavorable discharge from military service, or veteran status; is so restrictive as to make the management of the gift/donation unnecessarily difficult; or is not deemed to be in the best interest of the College.

The value of the non-cash gift/donation is the sole responsibility of the donor to establish.

As an alternative, gifts/donations may be offered to the Prairie State College Foundation and may be accepted or refused by the Foundation according to the guidelines established by the Foundation and consistent with the policies of the Board of Trustees.
