Donations

Donations of Property

Under certain circumstances and with appropriate approvals, donations of University property may be approved to qualifying organizations.  Property that may be donated is limited to items that are no longer needed or wanted by any campus department, and that have a fair market value (potential selling price) that is below the estimated selling expenses (advertising, transporting, storing, etc.) or the estimated cost of disposal.  Donations of property must be approved by the Senior Associate Vice President for Finance before they become available for donation.

For donations of property, a qualifying organization includes educational facilities, non-profit organizations, juvenile detention centers, municipal and county offices, or other public, charitable or educational enterprises.

Qualifying organizations interested in being eligible to receive donations of property should submit an Application for Eligibility to Property Management at AssetMG@mail.wvu.edu or mail to Property Management – Financial Services, PO Box 6001, West Virginia University, Morgantown, WV  26506.  Forms are valid for two years from the date of approval.

Items available for donation will be listed on this website as they become available.  Approved qualifying organizations should submit their request for specific property items listed on this site to AssetMG@mail.wvu.edu.  The donations will be awarded on a first-come, first-served basis, and all donations are required to have the appropriate official from the receiving organization sign the Property Transfer Form upon receipt of property.

Once a qualifying organization is awarded a donation, the organization is responsible for arranging a transfer time with the WVU property representative and for transporting the property donated.
