Planning for Year-End Charitable Giving

Fall is here and with the holidays approaching, it’s time to start planning ways to make the most of year-end charitable giving. This is the season to ensure your donations make the greatest impact, while maximizing tax advantages.

Tips for Year-End Charitable Giving
  1. Start Planning Now. Deciding on the best donation strategy takes time and coordination with tax and investment advisors. Getting an early start is advisable to ensure a smooth and effective year-end giving season.
  2. Create a Giving Plan. Think strategically about how you give and to what organizations. While there are many worthy causes, only donations to qualified 501(c)(3) organizations are tax-deductible.
  3. Give Early and Complete your Gift by Dec 31st. Gifts of stock and real estate are complex. Don’t wait until late December to make these gifts when it may be too late to make the necessary arrangements.
  4. Explore Employer Gift Matching Programs. Many companies offer matching programs that can increase or even double the impact of your contribution. Make yours count!
  5. Bunching gifts can increase their tax benefit. If you're itemizing or had unusually high gains this year, consider "bunching" several years' worth of contributions to make the most of potential tax deductions.

In addition to the generosity of their gifts and support, donors and volunteers can also help by advocating for others to make year-end gifts. If you or your company are in search of a charity to sponsor, consider RRF as a cause worth supporting. Read more ways to give back here.

Eight New California Laws That Impact Nonprofits

AB-488 (Irwin) provides important protections for online donors and nonprofits receiving online funds. Under this new law, fundraising platforms will no longer be able to hide fees, use nonprofits’ names to raise funds without permission, or hang onto donations indefinitely.
“This legislation impacts every single person who clicks on that ‘donate now’ button and every single nonprofit that receives funding this way,” said Jan Masaoka, CEO of CalNonprofits. “It may be low-profile but it’s most certainly high-impact and meaningful.”
