Giving Season 2022
About Giving Season
Each year, Charitable Impact looks forward to Giving Season. Giving Season is the time of year (October - December) during which most donations and grants are made. Donors are getting into the holiday spirit, charities are in extra need at this time, and tax receipts for 2022 must be issued by the end of the year (December 31, 2022). This means that our teams are working hard to open accounts, process donations, and ensure grants get to charities swiftly. By encouraging donors to donate early, we can ensure everyone receives accurate tax receipts for their donations and charities are able to receive their grants before year end.
How to give during Giving Season
Giving during Giving Season is done the same way as any other time of year at Charitable Impact. With seasonal activity in mind, we like to prepare our donors, charities, and financial services partners well in advance by listing important dates, deadlines, and office closures. See the tables below for details.
