2011 end of year giving

December 5, 2011

If you are considering giving a gift to HSCI in tax year 2011, there are a few factors to keep in mind to make sure that Harvard is able to give you a tax receipt for calendar year 2011 instead of 2012.  Mutual funds must be received in Harvard’s account no later than 12/12/2011.  If you are sending a check, please make sure that the envelope is postmarked no later than 12/31/2011, or, if you are using a service other than US Mail, that the package arrives at Harvard no later than 12/31/2011.  Credit card donations must be charged to your account no later than 12/31/2011.  Bank Wires and Electronic Securities Transfers must be received in Harvard’s account no later than 12/31/2011.
Please note that although the University is closed beginning at Noon on 12/23/2011, reopening on 1/3/12, the Recording Secretary’s Office will be open from 12/27/11 – 12/30/11 to assist you should you need it during that time.  You may reach an RSO representative at (617) 495-1750.  For additional information on how you may give a gift, please select the following link: http://www.hsci.harvard.edu/how-you-can-help.
