Year-End Giving Tax-Saving Ideas and Deadlines

 

Tax-Saving Ideas

As we approach the end of 2022, here are some ideas that may help you save on taxes as you make your year-end gifts.

2022 Giving and Grant Recommendation Deadlines

Following is this year’s deadline schedule which can help ensure that your end-of-year charitable gift will be applied to the 2022 tax year and your grants received by December 31, 2022.

  • Grant recommendations should be made by December 6, 2022, to ensure checks are received by the end of the year. Please do so by emailing your island HCF contact or using DonorSphere.
  • Gifts of appreciated stock should be made by December 23, 2022. (If the stock is transferred by December 31, 2022, it will qualify, but transferring earlier helps avoid any unforeseen delays.)
  • Checks sent via the U.S. Postal Service to HCF must be postmarked on or before December 31, 2022.
  • Checks sent via carriers such as FedEx, UPS and DHL must be physically received at any HCF office on or before December 31, 2022.
  • Wire transfers of cash must be initiated no later than December 23, 2022. (If the cash is wired by December 31, 2022, it will qualify, but wiring earlier helps avoid any unforeseen delays.)
  • Credit card gifts handled online can be made on or before December 31, 2022, at hawaiicommunityfoundation.org/give.

If you miss a deadline, we will do our best to meet the 2022 requirements, but unfortunately cannot guarantee that your gift will apply to the 2022 tax year or that your grant is received by December 31.

HCF will be closed on the following days:

  • Friday, December 24 at noon through Monday, December 26, 2022.
  • Friday, December 30 at noon through Monday, January 2, 2023.

For assistance, please contact any one of our staff here.
