As 2019 comes to a close, we wanted to make sure you have important information about HPUMC’s holiday schedule as it relates to end-of-year giving.
Please know that while HPUMC will officially close from Dec. 23 - Jan. 2, you can still make your gift before the end of the tax year. Feel free to reference the additional information below for help:
Gifts of appreciated securities
Stock transfers and especially mutual fund transfers take longer. Please check with your broker about the processing time of your gift, and note that it cannot be processed as a gift until it is received in HPUMC’s custody account. Please contact us for delivery instructions and provide us with information about the transfer so we can be prepared to receive and process your gift correctly. Gifts of stock must be received by our broker, Maplewood Investors, no later than noon on December 31 to be ensured of 2019 contribution status.
Credit card gifts
Credit card gifts must be charged by 11:59 p.m. on December 31 to be treated as a deduction for 2019. This happens instantly and is receipted immediately when processed through the online giving form. This is the best way to ensure your credit card is charged in 2019 for tax purposes.
Gifts sent by direct mail
Any mailed checks postmarked by December 31 will be processed for the 2019 calendar year. You can mail your gift to the address below:
Highland Park United Methodist Church
