4.  ACCEPTANCE OF GIFTS

a.  When a state university anticipates applying for, accepting and receiving a private donation, gift, grant or bequest that may impose a significant fiscal obligation upon the university, such private donation, gift, grant or bequest must be reviewed by the Board of Regents prior to the acceptance of such donation, gift, grant or bequest by the Board or authorization for the state university to accept such donation, gift, grant or bequest pursuant to K.S.A. 76 724.  For purposes of this policy "significant fiscal obligation" shall be considered to be a need, at the time of receipt of the donation, gift, grant or bequest, and in reasonable relation to the acceptance thereof, to:  (i) seek ¬addi¬tional state funding of $50,000 or more, or (ii) seek additional state funding for operating support of a gift building.

b.  If appropriate, the President and Chief Executive Officer of the Board shall notify other officials of the State including but not limited to the Governor, the Secretary of Administration, the State Director of the Budget, the Attorney General and the Director of Architectural Services of such private donations, gifts, grants or bequests.

c.  The chief executive officer of each state university shall seek to verify, with reference to all private donations, gifts, grants or bequests of real property, that said real property was not the site of or used for the disposal of hazardous wastes or materials.

d.  When the proposed private donations, gifts, grants or bequests consist of a facility to be constructed for the state university, reasonable efforts should be taken to encourage the donor to make such gift conform to guidelines and procedural manuals of the Director of Architectural Services.

e.  This policy shall not apply to donations, gifts, grants or bequests made to institutional endowment associations or foundations.
