Year End Deadlines

Important year-end giving deadlines

To receive a gift receipt for 2019, please make your gift by the important deadlines below.

Gifts in Support of Arizona State University

All contributions must be received at the ASU Foundation before 1:00 p.m. on Tuesday, December 31, 2019. For all gifts received through US Mail, the envelope must be postmarked on or before December 31, 2019 and addressed to: ASU Foundation, PO Box 2260 | Tempe, AZ 85280-2260.

Mutual Fund Gifts

Mutual fund gift paperwork must be received at the ASU Foundation on or before 5:00 p.m. on December 3, 2019. We cannot guarantee mutual fund transactions received after December 3rd will be processed as a 2019 gift for tax purposes due to additional mutual fund and banking institution requirements. Mutual fund gifts normally take about three weeks to process through the required steps.

Stock or Bond Gifts

Transmit stock or bond gifts electronically via your financial institution to the ASU Foundation Northern Trust account before the market closes on Tuesday, December 31, 2019 to be considered a 2019 gift. Stock or bond gifts can also be delivered via US Mail postmarked by December 31, or hand delivered to the Foundation by December 31 no later than 5:00 p.m. at: Fulton Center, 300 E. University Drive | Tempe, AZ 85281.

Qualified Charitable Distributions (QCD) from IRA

Only donors age 70.5 or older are eligible for this gift transfer. If you are instructing your IRA Account custodian to make a direct transfer to the ASU Foundation, please be mindful that the IRS does not recognize the QCD as complete until the check or transfer has cleared your custodial account. To avoid being taxed on the charitable distribution, the entire process must be completed no later than December 27, 2019.
