Here’s how to give
While the UMKC campus is closed during Winter Break, it’s still easy to make a year-end gift by observing the following guidelines.
UMKC offices will be closed Monday, Dec. 26 through Monday, Jan. 2. All gifts must hit UMKC Foundation accounts by Dec. 31 to receive tax credit for the 2022 calendar year. Checks and cash need to be postmarked on or before Dec. 31.
- Credit card and stock gifts must hit the UMKC Foundation accounts by Dec. 31 to receive tax-credit for the 2022 calendar year. Checks and cash need to be postmarked on or before Dec. 31
- The date UMKC receives and processes checks and cash from the mail has NO impact on a donor’s taxable year contributions. The “gift date” for the IRS is the date the donor relinquished control, not the date the gift is processed.
Availability & Contacts
- The Office of Gift Processing will be available Friday Dec. 30 from 8 a.m. to noon to accept year-end gifts. The Office of Gift Processing will be closed during the remainder of winter break and will re-open with regular business hours on Tuesday, Jan. 3.
- The UMKC Foundation Office will be closed during winter break. A few staff will be on rotation remotely during the period. If you have any questions, call 816-235-5778, and someone will return your call.
- For any stock gifts or wire transfers, please contact Tram Nguyen at firstname.lastname@example.org for the transfer form and DTC instructions. Stock gifts must be received into the account on or before Dec. 31 to be reflected in 2022 tax period, per the IRS.
- Inquiries about all other year-end gifts can be directed to Sara Hampton at 816-235-5329 or via email to email@example.com. The Office of Gift Processing will also be taking calls at 816-235-1566 during the office hours listed above.
Checks must be received in the Gift Processing office by Friday, Jan. 13, 2023, in an envelope postmarked on or prior to Dec. 31, 2022, to be credited in the 2022 tax year. Gifts received after that date will not automatically be included in processing for the annual tax receipt. If the envelope received is postmarked after Dec. 31, it will be counted as a 2023 gift.

Stock or Mutual Funds –
