Ways to Give This Holiday Season

On behalf of the Community Foundation of Anne Arundel County and the nonprofits you support, we appreciate your generosity and support of our community in 2022. CFAAC works to ensure that your donations make the greatest impact on the causes you care about while maximizing your tax-saving benefits. With that in mind, and so we can provide the best service and ensure your charitable gifts qualify for a 2022 IRS tax deduction, please keep the following dates in mind:  

  • We recommend that gifts of appreciated stock be initiated by December 16, before the December 30, 2022 transfer deadline, to allow enough time for transfer completion, should any unexpected delay occur. Note: Please notify CFAAC of the approximate number of shares and name of the company in advance. Shares received to CFAAC's ownership prior to the close of business on December 30st, even if not sold until 2023, can be claimed as a tax deduction for 2022.
