Notice body

University faculty and staff receiving or processing mail upon the reopening of campus offices on Jan. 4, 2016, may find financial or stock donations for which a donor is expecting a 2015 charitable deduction. The Auburn University Foundation can provide 2015 charitable tax documentation only for gifts that are postmarked on or before Dec. 31, 2015. Without a 2015 postmark, the foundation must date these contributions based on the day on which they are processed in 2016. Therefore, it is critical that employees receiving such donations save the postmarked envelope and any other documents or correspondence included with the donation. So the foundation can process these gifts as quickly as possible, forward all such materials to the Office of Development, Attn: Gift Processing, 317 S. College St., by Friday, Jan. 8. To expedite gift processing, advise donors expressing an interest in making a year-end contribution to mail donations to this address or to give online at Contact Gift Processing at 844-1127 with questions.
