2023 year-end planning
As you prepare for the year to end, we've gathered the following resources to help you reach your charitable goals in line with your values and priorities.


Everyone has different causes dear to them driven by their faith and values. We help you make your vision a reality by guiding you along the path which is best for your journey. We take the anxiety and complexity out of giving—especially at the end of the year—so you can experience the joy of making a difference.

You can watch the "Year-end planning" on-demand webinar with tips and tools for planning, giving and granting here.

Additionally, for your convenience, we pulled together 2023 year-end giving deadlines to ensure your gifts are recognized by the IRS yet this year and you maximize your potential tax benefits.
