Lewis-Clark State College, including the Advancement Office, the LCSC Alumni Association, and the LCSC Foundation, is closed from Monday December 25, 2017, through Monday, January 1, 2018. We will reopen on Tuesday, January 2, 2018. During this period, we want to ensure that all donors who wish to do so are able to transact gifts to the LCSC Foundation.
Please review the information below for details regarding making a year-end gift.
We will issue a 2017 tax receipt for an online gift if it is submitted by December 31, 2017, at 11:59 p.m. Pacific Standard Time (PST). A gift made online after 11:59 p.m. will be issued a 2018 tax receipt. To make your gift online, visit www.lcsc.edu/giving.
Phoned-in Credit Card Gifts
If you wish to make a credit card gift over the phone, you must call 208.792.2458 by December 21, 2017, at 3:00 p.m. in order to ensure timely processing and 2017 tax deduction eligibility. After 3:00 p.m., please use the secure, online giving form at www.lcsc.edu/giving.
Mailed-in Credit Card Gifts
IRS regulations consider a credit card gift as having been made at the moment it is processed. Therefore, mailed-in credit card gifts must be received by the LCSC Foundation by December 21, 2017, in order to ensure 2017 tax deduction eligibility (regardless of the postmark date). If the credit card gift is not received by December 27, 2017, we will issue a 2018 tax receipt.
We will issue a 2017 tax receipt for a gift if it is postmarked on or before December 31, 2017, AND the check is dated on or before December 31, 2017. If either the check OR the postmark are dated after December 31, 2017, we will issue a 2018 tax receipt. (Please note: mailed-in credit card gifts received during the closure period will not be processed until the College reopens on January 2, 2017. Therefore, we will issue a 2018 tax receipt for any mailed-in credit card gifts received after December 23, 2017.)
To mail a gift, please make your check payable to The LCSC Foundation. If you wish to designate your gift to a certain area, please write that in the memo line of the check.
