Gifts delivered by US Mail must be postmarked by December 31, 2023 in order to receive a 2023 gift date. Hand delivered gifts must be received in person in our office by 2 pm on Friday, December 29, 2023 in order to receive a 2023 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, 2023 in order to receive a 2023 gift date. We kindly suggest that donors who wish to make a credit card make their gift well before December 31, 2023 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 15, 2023 to ensure that the gift can be treated as qualified for 2023. 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 2023 gift. Receiving such gifts is dependent on the processing speed of your brokerage firm. 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.
