Monday Message 11-29-2021

Hello Trinity Families,

As you are probably all aware, tomorrow is "Giving Tuesday" which was created to capture the same energy as Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, Cyber Monday, etc. for unleashing generosity! This is a day that non-profits around the world will celebrate the holiday spirit of giving. As we always state, no gift is too small and it is the collective community coming together that truly moves the needle forward.

As we quickly approach the end of the calendar year, we want to make sure you have every opportunity to maximize your gifts to charities this year while also keeping your tax liability in mind. While you have until July 31, 2022 to make your gift by the fiscal year deadline, your 2021 tax deduction deadline is December 31, 2021.

Did you know that many companies will match gifts to charitable institutions? Ask your employer if they match educational institutions. While you won’t get a tax deduction for the match, you can often double or even triple your impact to Trinity! If you have any additional questions regarding IRA charitable rollover, stock options, charitable trusts, or legacy planning; please let us know.

We are 50% of the way there to reaching our goal of raising $125,000 by July 31st, 2022. If everyone in our Charger community pitches in, there are no limits to what we can do! We ask that you consider Trinity Episcopal School tomorrow as you commemorate Giving Tuesday.

Warmest Regards and With Gratitude,

Shannan Pfeifer, Director of Development
