Ways to Give

 

When you make a gift to the Gering Public Schools Foundation, you aren't just impacting the lives of students like Andres. Your generosity extends beyond one person or one opportunity. An investment in the GPS Foundation supports the future of our entire community, bringing the power of a quality education within reach for our families and neighbors.

  • IRA Rollover Update - If you are 70 1/2 or older, you may be interested in a way to lower the income and taxes from your IRA withdrawals. With an IRA charitable rollover, you can benefit yourself and help us continue our mission.
  • Support our Greatest Need Fund - Donating to this fund allows us to fill in the gaps for our students and programs. Assistance through this fund can help create more opportunity and enhance program innovation beyond our public school funding. 
  • Establish a Scholarship - It’s easier than you might think to establish a Foundation scholarship. Discover how to create a scholarship and support deserving students, by or calling us at 308.633.4343.
  • Support our General Academic/Activities Program Funds or a specific Program Academic/Activities Fund for Excellence - Donating to a fund for excellence supports specific programs and program/grade initiatives.
  • Donate In-kind - The Foundation accepts gifts that are identified as GPS needs or items that can be readily converted to cash.
  • Estate Planning - Planned gifts (real estate, retirement assets, etc.) require more preparation than a direct cash donation, but can be tailored to meet your specific needs.
  • Endowments - An endowment fund is established by a donor and acts as a long-term investment in which the principle remains intact and creates a source of income (through fiscally responsible investments) in order to fund a scholarship or program over a period of time. 
  • Donate securities- We can help you donate securities like stocks and bonds, providing you with immediate benefits.
