The deadline for 2022 Donor Advisor Grant Nominations, Tuesday, December 6, 2022, has now passed. We can continue to take nominations but they will be processed in early 2023. We are improving our services and will be changing our access portal software for donor advisors after this date in early December 2022. This may result in longer grant processing times than usual until early January 2023. If this presents a major issue or concern for you, please contact either Amy LeViere at aleviere@cftompkins.org or George Ferrari at gferrari@cftompkins.org during our availability as listed above and we will do our best for you to seek ways to achieve your granting goals. Thank you.

 

Gift Deadlines

Gifts delivered by US Mail must be postmarked by December 31, 2022 in order to receive a 2022 gift date. Hand delivered gifts must be received in person in our office by 2 pm on Friday, December 30, 2022 in order to receive a 2022 gift date.

Gifts made by credit card made HERE online must be confirmed by our credit card processor as having been made by 11:59PM December 31, 2022 in order to receive a 2022 gift date. We kindly suggest that donors who wish to make a credit card make their gift well before December 31, 2022 if at all possible.

For Gifts of Stock or IRA Qualified Charitable Distributions (QCDs) we kindly ask that you be certain that the transfer process has begun no later than Friday, December 16, 2022 to ensure that the gift can be treated as qualified for 2022. You can still make a gift of stock after this date but we cannot guarantee that we will receive it in time for it to be considered a 2022 gift. We will do our best. The IRS does NOT allow IRA Charitable distributions to donor advised funds. All other fund types, operational, designated, and field of interest, are eligible for this special distribution. CLICK HERE to learn more about how to make a stock, crypto or mutual fund gift.
