Prepare for the End of the Year

Tips to Help You Maximize Your Giving

Generosity knows no season, but October through December are historically the months that Americans are most likely to give to their favorite charitable organizations. These months mark the traditional season of giving and receiving as well as the time that many of us begin income tax planning.

Following are some tips to help you maximize your giving before the year ends.

Gather your receipts. Documentation of your giving is important to have if you plan to itemize on your taxes. Before the year comes to a close, make sure you have records of all your giving for the year. Missing something? Contact the organization to request a new copy or for assistance.

Find the best gift for you. Once you’ve reviewed what you’ve already given this year, you may be ready to make some final gifts and gift commitments for 2019. Be sure to contact your attorney or financial advisor for help finding the giving option that will help you reach your giving and financial goals.

Be aware of due dates. To make sure your gifts qualify for 2019, you’ll need to ensure they are received before their due date. Contact Lawrence "Chip" Junkin, M'15 for popular gift dates or to learn what it will take to make your gift to The College count this year.

Going the Distance

"Whether training for the triathlon or aiming for college, it takes hard work and dedication to hit the mark. But sometimes, hard work just isn’t enough. Generous scholarships gave us the boost we needed for college, and now we are paying it forward through annual donations and a planned gift to keep the momentum going for students today and tomorrow."
