END OF YEAR GIVING INFORMATION
Year End Gifts to St. David’s
Any end of the year gifts to St. David’s must be delivered to the office or postmarked no later than December 31 in order to claim it on your 2018 Federal Income Tax Return. Any undesignated gifts will be applied to the 2018 General Operating Fund. You may designate that your gift be applied towards your 2019 pledge or any of St. David’s worthwhile ministries. If the church office is closed, you may leave your contribution in the mail slot next to the Canterbury Hill entrance.
2017 Tax Law Change
The 2017 tax law change will impact whether donors elect to itemize their deductions beginning in 2018. You may want to consult your financial advisor to see if the following giving methods would be beneficial for you:
Qualified Charitable Distributions – If you are 70 ½ or older, you may take advantage of making a contribution up to $100,000 from your traditional IRA to St. David’s and avoid having to claim that transfer as part of your gross income. The transfer must be made directly from the IRA to St. David’s and must be postmarked no later than December 31.
Stock Transfers – Consider transferring stocks directly to St. David’s rather than selling the stock and making a cash donation. This will allow you to avoid the tax on the capital gain of that stock.
Bunching your donations – Many donors choose to make their donation every other year. For example, in addition to your 2018 contributions to St. David’s, you also pre-pay your 2019 contributions in 2018. This method may allow you to itemize every other year.
