Let’s Talk: Year-End Giving

2018 is just around the corner, so now is a great time to meet your year-end goal for your 2017 charitable giving. By adding to or creating a new fund before the end of the year, you can make a tax-deductible donation now, then decide later which nonprofits to support.

Don’t forget! Your gift must be completed by December 31st to receive a tax benefit for this calendar year. If you are gifting by check, it must be mailed (postmarked) on or before December 31st to the GiveWell Community Foundation. For gifts by credit card, contributions can be made on our website until December 31st. Gifts of publicly- or privately-traded stock and other non-cash assets can be more complex, so be sure to get in touch with us soon to discuss.

If you have any questions or would like to set up an appointment, please call us at 863-683-3131. Our staff is ready to help you meet your financial and philanthropic goals! Friday, December 29th is the last day that our offices will be open in 2017. After that, if there is an urgent matter, please contact our Chief Financial Officer, Amy Royal, at 863-944-0584 or our President/CEO, Terry Simmers at 863-581-5554.
