Fundraising appeals spike in December. Remember, the year-end giving season ends on December 31. This deadline is important for donors who itemize charitable deductions. Transferring cash or stock now to your Donor Advised Fund can allow you to receive an immediate charitable income tax deduction, generating tax benefits at the maximum amount allowed for gifts to public charities. The decision as to which charities to benefit can be extended beyond the year of the gift. Call us at 614-338-2365 for information or details on how to establish your own Foundation fund before the year ends.
