Gifted funds can be used for the EB-5 investment. The gifted funds should be transfer rend to your personal bank account and then transferred to the EB-5 project.
Investment as "gifts" are allowed under the EB-5 rules and regulations. You will need documents, such as a deed of the gift or a letter of instruction, to show that the money is being gifted to you. In the case of a gift, the source of funds will be traced back through the gifter to make sure the capital was lawfully attained.
