Thank you for your interest in donating an item to support the educational pursuits of Southwest Tech. In-kind gifts are an important way Southwest Tech is able to keep our program labs equipped with the technology to successfully train the next generation of skilled workers.

When planning to make an in-kind donation please be sure to reach out to the Southwest Tech Foundation office. We will work with the necessary faculty and staff members to see if the in-kind item can be utilized in one of our program labs or elsewhere on campus. If you have already reached out to a faculty or staff member, please also notify the Foundation office. We will work collaboratively to ensure proper channels of communication are followed in addition to having the necessary paperwork prior to filling out the Gift In-Kind form. Once the in-kind has been properly vetted we will work with you to fill out the Gift In-Kind form. Upon approval, we will make arrangements for drop-off, delivery or pick-up of the donated item.

IRS Information on In-Kind Giving

For IRS information on claiming in-kind charitable contributions on your tax return, please see IRS Form 8283 Instructions. In-Kind donations valued over $500 have to have an IRS Form 8283 accompany the other paperwork being attached within the Gift In-Kind Form. Once all appropriate paperwork is completed and upon receiving your in-kind gift the Southwest Wisconsin Technical College Foundation, Inc. – a 501 (c) (3) charitable organization – will provide you with receipt of your donation along with the final IRS Form 8283 signed by the Foundation.
