Make Your Year-End Gift Count
For your gift to qualify for a deduction in 2019, keep these tips in mind.
Gifts by USPS must be postmarked by Dec. 31, 2019.
Gifts via couriers like UPS or FedEx must be received by Foundation offices by Dec. 31, 2019, 5 p.m.
Gifts by credit card (phone-in or online) will be counted on the date the charge is made, not the date it is processed by the financial institution.
Hand delivered donations must be received by Dec. 31, 2019, 5 p.m. at Foundation offices.
Gifts by stock transfer must be completed by Dec. 31, 2019. Simply ask your broker to make a transfer to St. Jude Memorial Foundation’s brokerage account: Charles Schwab, Acct. #8411-1051, DTC #0164. Please inform us of your stock gift ahead of time so we can credit the gift appropriately.
Gifts by Charitable IRA Rollover (now a permanent giving option!) should be started much earlier than the Dec. 31, 2019 deadline, as processing by your IRA administrator could take a few weeks.
