donation, contribution

In this case, it should be either "donation" or "contribution", not "presentation".

BTW, the pronunciation of "寄贈" is generally "きぞう" (kizoo), not "きそう" (kisoo).

agree  seika: You can pronunce "gisoh" also. It is not a mistake.

  -> No. "gisoh" is not a correct pronunciation: it would be most likely "偽装". "寄贈" can be pronunced as "kisoo", but the *general* pronunciation is "kizoo".
