  • Our state legislature established a pool of $1million for Lake Region State College (LRSC) to claim by raising $2 million in gifts and pledges from private sources.
     
  • The Challenge Match gives priority to gifts for scholarships and gifts that strengthen academic programs.
  • Gifts of stock/real estate, and irrevocably gifts bequests may also be accepted and matched.
     
  • Gift and pledge commitments must be made by December 31, 2016 to qualify for match. Pledges may extend 5 years.
     
  • Challenge Match funds are awarded when the gift or pledge is made.
     
  • LRSC’s Foundation (Community College Foundation) becomes responsible if a pledge is not paid.

In addition, North Dakota taxpayers also qualify for a 40% tax credit for gifts to permanent endowments managed by LRSC's Foundation. Individuals must gift $5,000 in a tax year to qualify for the credit. When the ND tax credit is combined with the Federal tax deduction, the net cost of a $5,000 gift could be as little as $1,600. And, when the Challenge Match is applied, the gift's value grows to $7,500.‚Äč
