As the year comes to a close, many individuals and businesses are wrapping up their fiscal calendars as well. While tax time isn’t until April 15, donations need to be made – and recorded! – before the end of the calendar year in order to be included in your 2019 TVC giving statement and reported on your 2019 taxes. We get a number of questions each year about end-of-year giving, online statements – even stock donations – so we want to make sure we give you all the information you need in plenty of time to take action.
If you’re planning to make a year-end gift to The Village Chapel, there are deadlines for getting donations reported on your 2019 giving statement for tax purposes. Online donations must be processed by December 30 and mailed checks must be postmarked by December 31. The last day for offering box donations is Sunday, December 29, while stock donations need to be initiated by December 20. Questions? Email [email protected].
Online Transactions – All online transactions must be processed by December 30 in order to be reported on your 2019 giving statement.
Mailed Checks – Mailed, written checks need to not just contain a 2019 date, they must also be postmarked no later than Tuesday, December 31.
Offering Box Donations – All donations received during the Sunday offering on December 29 will be applied to 2019.
Stock-Related Donations – All stock donations need to be initiated by December 20 to ensure the transfer is complete and funds received by TVC before December 31.
Giving Statements – We’ll mail 2019 giving statements in January 2020, so please be sure to check that your contact information and mailing address in myTVC is up-to-date in order to receive your year-end statement in a timely manner! You can also use myTVC any time throughout the year to track your giving and print your own giving statement. Just log in and then click the “Give” tab on the left. Next, select “Schedules/History” and click on the “Giving Statement” button in the top right corner. You can then select from several options to create a customized, printable record.
If you have any questions about year-end giving, email [email protected]. We’re grateful for your generous giving in 2019 and all that it has allowed us to do in our church, our community and around the world!
