8 reminders for year-end gifting and granting

This year, we once again witnessed the incredible generosity of the Minot area. With just under a month left before we welcome 2023, there's still time to make a gift to your community—and we don't want anything to get in the way of your desire to make a difference.

To help you plan your year-end gifting and granting, we have some important reminders to share:

1. If you would like help choosing where to share your generosity this year, please contact us. You might also consider giving to the Community Enrichment Fund to join with others in supporting needs across the area or sending a gift to an existing endowment fund. Contact the office for more information.

2. Gifts can be made until Friday, December 30 and still be credited in 2022. 

3. If you have a donor-advised fund and wish to make a grant before year-end, please submit your recommendation by Friday, December 16, so it is fulfilled by December 31. For support making a grant recommendation, contact Staci at (701) 852-0646 or Email Staci.

4. Notify us now of any gifts you’re sending from more complicated instruments such as stock, IRA distributions, or electronic fund transfers, as these require extra time and coordination to arrive at the Community Foundation. If you wish to make a donation via an IRA checkbook, we recommend that this gift arrive at the Community Foundation by December 15 in order to provide enough time for it to clear your account by the December 31 deadline.

5. Stock gifts must be received by the Community Foundation's receiving institution prior to 3 p.m. on December 30 to ensure they will be credited in 2022. Contact our office early for stock transfer instructions.

6. Gifts mailed through USPS must have a visible postmark of no later than December 30, 2022, to be credited in 2022. Make all gifts payable to “Minot Area Community Foundation,” with the fund name noted on the memo line.

7. Gifts arriving via UPS or FedEx must be received at the Community Foundation by 3 p.m. on December 30, 2022, to be credited in 2022. Make all gifts payable to “Minot Area Community Foundation” with the fund name in the note.

8. Our office will be open December 27–29 from 8:00 a.m.–5:00 p.m.; and December 30 from 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. If you seek gifting assistance outside office hours, please leave a message on our main voicemail at (701) 852-0646 or Email Jason.

Thank you again for ensuring generosity always lives here in the Minot area! We look forward to working with you in 2023. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from your Minot Area Community Foundation team – Jason, Staci, and Chelsea!
