Make a 2017 tax-year-end gift to Loyola December 14, 2017 | By Ashleigh Aldridge Photo by Kellie Welborn Supporters of Loyola University Maryland who want to receive a tax deduction for the 2017 calendar year can make a gift through Dec. 31, 2017. Although the University is closed from Dec. 22-Jan. 1, advancement staff will be working to receive gifts through the last day of 2017. Although gifts may be submitted until 11:59 p.m. on Dec. 31, however, they will be dated based on when the donor’s credit card company authorizes the charge. So donors who are hoping for a tax deduction should not wait until the last minute. All gifts to Loyola University Maryland go directly toward Bright Minds, Bold Hearts, the University’s comprehensive campaign raising $100 million for strategic academic, athletics, and service initiatives. The campaign currently stands at more than $90 million. To make a gift, visit loyola.edu/give or call 410-617-2296. Gifts are gratefully accepted online, by phone, by mail, by stock transfer, and through mutual funds. Information on all the ways to give to Loyola is here. To determine the tax deductibility of gifts, always seek the advice of a professional tax consultant.
