Your Guide to 2019 Charitable Giving

by Christopher L. Kelly, Esq.

It’s hard to believe that 2019 (and this decade) is almost over! Before we flip the calendar to 2020, now is a great time to review a few charitable giving ideas to see if any of these might make sense for you to implement before 2019 comes to a close, especially as you think of ways to support your church or other Baptist cause.  

Make a Regular Donation.

Batching Contributions

Give Gifts of Appreciated Assets.

Required Minimum Distribution (RMD)/Qualified Charitable Distribution (QCD)


Remember, when the ball drops on December 31, you will lose the ability to take advantage of these strategies for 2019. If any of these ideas interest you, begin the process now to make sure you allow plenty of time for the process to be completed by year-end. 

From the Tennessee Baptist Foundation, we wish you the happiest of Christmas seasons as we celebrate Immanuel!
