The benefits of year-end giving

Making a gift by December 31st is a great way to support the charities you care about, and receive a tax-benefit at the same time. When you make a year-end donation to the BEF you help us to support Bexley students, teachers and schools, and you help reduce your taxable income if you itemize deductions. Contributions to the BEF’s Annual Fund for Excellence are 100% tax-deductible.

BEF can also accept and facilitate gifts of appreciated stock ”“ but keep in mind that gifts of stock or other securities may take 2-3 weeks to process at year-end. If you have any questions about making a year-end gift, please call the BEF office at (614) 338-2093.
