As we head into November, we wanted to advise you of a few important deadlines:
Grant Recommendations & Distributions: December 17, 2021. This is the deadline for this year’s grant recommendations! We know that many of your favorite charities plan big year-end campaigns. Please help us make these critical resources count for your nonprofit partner’s fiscal year by making your recommendations before this deadline.
Please note that grant recommendations made after December 17 (5PM Eastern Standard Time) may be approved and processed early in 2022.
Contributions: December 31, 2021. For your giving to FJC to qualify for a 2021 tax deduction, we must receive your contributions by December 31.
- Electronic transfer recommended. We recommend that cash contributions are sent by credit card, ACH, or wire transfer and received by FJC by December 31. (Please note that ACH transfers can take up to 5 business days to settle, so please plan accordingly). Using electronic payments ensures the most efficient crediting of your account. Please contact FJC for instructions.
- Contributions by check. If you make contributions to your account by check, please note that checks that are sent via U.S. mail must be postmarked by December 31 to qualify as a 2021 tax deduction. Deliveries by other means (such as FedEx, DHL or others) must be received by December 31.
- Contributions of securities and mutual fund shares. These should be made as soon as possible and received by FJC by December 31. Please notify us in advance of the transfer so we can promptly credit your fund.
- Contributions of other assets. Real estate, restricted securities or privately held stock can be made, but require long lead times, so let us know ASAP.
