End of Year Giving
As the end of the calendar year is such an important time for charitable giving, we are particularly eager to ensure you are aware of all of our services.
Year-End Contributions to a Fund
- Gifts of Securities (stock, bonds, mutual funds): This is an excellent time to consider using appreciated stock to start or add to your Donor Advised Fund. You may avoid capital gains and receive a tax receipt for the full market value for 2018. Please call our finance department to request instructions or email for more information – firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Gifts of Cash: Checks must be U.S. Mail postmarked by December 31, 2018 and credit card gifts may be submitted online through our website through December 31, 2018 to receive a 2018 tax receipt.
Year-End Grants from a Fund
We now offer weekly grant runs. The following deadlines and mail-out dates are remaining for the month of December 2018 — 12/9 to mail on 12/14, 12/16 to mail on 12/21, and 12/23 to mail on 12/31. Checks for grant recommendations received on or before December 23 will be mailed to organizations on December 31. If you recommend a grant after December 23 and would like us to contact the recipient organization to share that the check is coming, we are happy to do so.
