Nonprofits all over New Hampshire rely on generosity to provide critical services in our communities. Much of that generosity traditionally comes at year-end.
As you make your giving decisions, here are a few important year-end deadlines to keep in mind if you are giving through the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation:
- In order to claim a tax deduction for 2018, your gift must be postmarked or hand-delivered on or before December 31, 2018. Please check with individual organizations to which you plan to give for their cutoff dates to process donations in 2018.
- Friday, December 14: Gifts of mutual funds should be completed by December 14 or earlier, as these gifts can take up to 10 days to process.
- Monday, December 31: Last day to accept gifts of cash, check or securities. (Click here for instructions to gift securities). However, to ensure that gifts of securities are transferred from your account by the December 31 deadline, we strongly recommend that you complete these transactions by 5:00 p.m. on Thursday, December 27.
