Worried About How the New Tax Law May Affect Your Year-End Donation?

Be assured, donations made before midnight, December 31, 2017 fall under 2017 tax rules. If you are worried about 2018, consider “doubling up,” adding next year’s planned gift to this year’s, and claiming the total on your 2017 return.* Donate Now.

*This strategy is perfectly okay, but you should check with your tax advisor to confirm eligibility.
