If you plan to make a year-end gift to Waccamaw Community Foundation using a check sent via the US Postal Service, please have the envelope postmarked to our office by December 31st.
For gifts of appreciated stock and mutual funds, please allow at least one week for the transaction. Remember, the gift date is the date we receive the asset – not the date you instruct your broker to make the transfer. When working with a broker, please give us a call at (843) 357-4483 so we can be on the lookout for your gift.
Please submit grant recommendations by December 16th so they can be distributed before year-end. You can make recommendations via email, fax, in person or on the donors page on the WCF website. Contact Shawna Mosley-Foster for more information at firstname.lastname@example.org.
As a reminder, because of legislative changes in 2015, donors more than 70 1/2 years old can now make direct gifts of up to $100,000 from their IRA that will count towards their annual required minimum distribution (RMD). Gifts can be made to designated, field-of-interest, scholarship and unrestricted funds.
