GHC Foundation - Year-End Deadlines

The Grays Harbor College Foundation accepts many types of assets, including cash, stocks and more. Once you make a contribution to the GHC Foundation, you’ll receive a tax receipt from our office. To be eligible for a yearly tax deduction, you may need to initiate your donation early. While some assets take longer to accept and process than others, these dates are meant to be used as guidelines. We encourage you to contact your tax advisor to see if your year-end gift qualifies as a charitable deduction. 

The GHC Foundation is ready to help you complete your year-end giving; please contact us.
