Newmont Adds to New GBC Building Efforts with $100,000 Pledge

Newmont Adds to New GBC Building Efforts with $100,000 Pledge graphic.Newmont Mining Corp. has pledged $100,000 towards the Great Basin College Health Sciences and Technology Building to be constructed on the GBC Winnemucca campus.

A $5 million pledge from the William N. Pennington Foundation announced last year is contingent upon raising a $2 million match. Following a 3-year, $1 million total pledge from Humboldt General Hospital, Newmont’s pledge brings formal pledges, and contributions already received, to more than $1.5 million.

“We are very appreciative of Newmont’s continued support of GBC and higher education. Pledges such as this, and the Newmont Legacy Fund’s contributions, are indicative of the importance Newmont places on the social well-being of rural Nevada. Newmont continues to be an industry leader in recognizing the value of helping to sustain healthy communities,” said GBC Foundation Director Matt McCarty.

Fundraising continues for the project and anyone interested in investing in the building can contact the GBC Foundation at 775-753-2260.
