In-Kind GiftsIn-Kind contributions help the college utilize all of the community's resources.
"In-kind" gifts are contributions of equipment, supplies, or other property. As a school of art and design, we welcome such giving, if the donations are appropriate and can be used by the College and our students.
In the past few years, we've accepted such gifts as the following:
- Dress forms
- A loom
- Photographic equipment
- Selected art supplies
If you are interested in making such a donation, please follow these steps:
- Contact Emily Foster Day in the Institutional Advancement office at (617) 879-7016 or email@example.com . Please note that our studio managers and faculty members are not responsible for assigning a value to such a gift. When making a contribution of this type, you may need to fill out IRS form 8283. (The IRS website also has instructions for form 8283).
- If the gift is appropriate and we have storage space, we will put you directly in touch with the studio manager. Ideally, we prefer that you bring the gift to campus. Our studio managers do not have a dedicated vehicle for picking up large donations.
- After the donation is made, and the studio manager informs us that the materials have been received, a staff member in the Philanthropy Department will write you an appropriate acknowledgment, thanking you for your donation. If you have submitted form 8283, we will return that signed form as well.
- You will be listed in the President's Report for that fiscal year.
Should you have other questions, please contact us at (617) 879-7016.
