End of Year Giving

The Santa Fe Community Foundation (SFCF) is poised to assist you with your year-end giving. So that we can provide the best possible service and ensure your charitable gifts qualify for a charitable income tax deduction in the 2021 tax year, please keep these important dates in mind:

  • Gifts of appreciated stock should be made by Thursday, December 23, 2021.
  • Checks sent via the U.S. Postal Service to SFCF must be postmarked on or before Friday, December 31, 2021.
  • Checks sent via carriers such as FedEx, UPS, and DHL must be physically received at SFCF on or before Friday, December 31, 2021.

Year-End Grant Recommendations

Donor advised fundholders may wish to recommend grants as part of year-end campaigns or holiday contributions. We would appreciate if your recommendations could be made by noon on Wednesday, December 29, 2021. 

Due to the volume of year-end grants, please contact Gabriela Gómez, Vice President for Advancement, at (505) 988-9715 ext. 7006 and ggomez@santafecf.org or Diane Hamamoto, Director of Grants & Community Impact, at (505) 988-9715 ext. 7008 and dhamamoto@santafe.org, to make any grant recommendations.


*The timing of donor advised grants has no effect on your 2021 charitable income tax donations, since your charitable contribution was made when you contributed it to your donor advised fund.
