The 2018 calendar year ends at midnight on Monday, December 31. In order for your gift to be considered a 2018 tax year gift, it must be made, received, and/or postmarked on Monday, December 31.
You are encouraged to make credit card gifts to Knox online, as these gifts can be made even when the College is closed.
If you prefer to give your credit card information to a person, please call 888-566-9265 and leave your name and phone number in the message. Do not leave your credit card number on voice mail. Knox Advancement staff will call you to get the credit card information for your gift. Fundraising staff will be monitoring phone messages and email messages weekdays December 24-31 from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
For your own security, please do not email credit card numbers.
The IRS considers a charitable gift made by check complete at the time the check is delivered or mailed, and the postmark is the evidence of the gift date.
Please mail contributions to Knox College Office of Advancement, Box K-230, 2 East South Street, Galesburg, IL 61401. Gifts delivered by overnight courier, e.g., Federal Express, UPS, and others, are deemed to have been made when they are delivered.
Stock gifts transferred to a brokerage house are credited the day received. Please have your broker coordinate your gift with these firms using the account information noted below.

Please also notify Knox of your plans to make a stock gift by emailing the information to firstname.lastname@example.org. In the email, include your name, the stocks you plan to give and how you'd like the College to use your gift—Knox Fund, etc. As brokerage houses often do not include donor names with the information sent to Knox, this will help us identify and thank you for your gift more easily.
As transfers of securities often take several days to accomplish, please begin the transfer as early as possible before the end of the calendar year in order to ensure your gift is considered deductible for the 2018 tax year.
