• Year-End Giving


  • Enjoy Tax Savings

    As you consider your charitable gifts between now and the end of the year, remember that gifts made now can generate income tax deductions that could help reduce your income tax bill. The amount you save depends on tax rates and the portion of your gifts you are allowed to deduct.

    Only gifts made by December 31 can help reduce the amount of taxes you will owe next April.

    Timing of Gifts

    To receive tax benefits, the timing of your gift is critical and varies depending on what you give and how you give it.

    Checks: The date your check is received by the College will be reflected on your receipt.

    Credit Cards: The date your payment is processed is considered the date of the donation. If mailing a credit card donation in December, please allow ample mail time. Better yet, make your donation online at www.mhcc.edu/foundation to ensure timely processing of your gift. Or call our office at 503-491-7206.

    Please be advised that the date on your receipt from the MHCC Foundation reflects when the College received your gift and does not imply the date the gift was made. To determine the tax consequences of your gift, please consult your tax advisor.

    Deciding What to Give
