End-of-Year Giving and Grantmaking

The holiday season is right around the corner, and The Dayton Foundation wants to help you with your end-of-year charitable giving needs. Please keep in mind the following information and contact Jill Koorndyk, senior director of donor services, at jkoorndyk@daytonfoundation.org or (937) 225-9944, with any questions.

» When making a gift of appreciated stock to your fund, be sure your brokerage firm has an account with the Foundation. Once verified, please provide written instructions to both your broker and to us so we may identify the Foundation fund to be credited with the gift. For more information on making a stock gift to your Dayton Foundation fund, contact Tracie Boshears, senior staff accountant, at tboshears@daytonfoundation.org or (937) 225-9967.

» If you are making a grant to a nonprofit organization and would like the nonprofit to receive your contribution by December 31, 2023, you must submit your grant request by 5:00 p.m. on Monday, December 18.

Thank you for letting us help you help others this year!
