I understand that certain funds available for my donation may include “hosting”, travel expenses or employee perquisites. By initialing in the box, I acknowledge that if I selected a fund for my donation that is designated with an asterisk (*) I understand and authorize that my donation may be used for these expenses. If I do not wish for my donation to be used in this manner, I acknowledge that I have selected a fund that is not designated with an asterisk.
HOSTING, defined: Certain funds and the investment income from gifts to those funds have been designated to be used for “hosting” purposes. Hosting includes reasonable expenses for meals, beverages, flowers and small gifts such as mementos by or on behalf of employees or guests of the Nevada System of Higher Education (NSHE) or one of its institutions in the conduct of necessary business activities. Hosting expenses must provide a benefit to the System or institution through the establishment of good will, promotion of programs, or creation of opportunities for meetings in which the mission of the System or NSHE institution may be advanced.

When making a gift by credit card, please note that a processing fee and a transaction fee equal to the amount charged by the credit card processor will be deducted from your donation. This does not affect the tax deductibility of your total gift, but it does reduce the total funds available in the fund you are supporting. No fees apply when your donation is made by check.
