2023 End-of-year giving tips

End-of-year gifts help even more kids and families experience their worth in Christ. Your donations create environments for individuals to feel safe and receive help to make positive changes in their lives. Your support truly changes lives.

We encourage you to please consult with your tax preparer or visit the IRS website for 2023 tax year information.

Reminder: When giving to CCHO, you may want to inquire with your employer (or your spouse’s) if they have a matching gift policy for charitable giving. You may have to file some paperwork with your employer’s HR department, but your gift will have a double impact on this ministry.

As a nonprofit organization in good standing, we follow IRS rules. To make your gift count towards tax-year 2023, here are some tips to keep in mind.

Check by mail: If you’re mailing a check through the post office, your donation is good for tax-year 2023 only if your envelope is postmarked Saturday, December 30 or earlier.

Check in person: If you’re in the Wooster area, we’d love to meet you. To make your gift in person, we are available to receive your gift at the administrative office on Armstrong Road until noon on Friday, December 29.

Credit card online: Make your gift online by 11:59:59pm on Sunday, December 31 and it will be counted for 2023. You’ll receive an immediate email notification to the email address you provided that your gift was submitted. Make your gift at

Electronic transfers of securities: When you direct your broker to transfer securities to CCHO, it’s considered a completed donation only when the funds are transferred from your account into another account. Keep in mind that if you are over age 70½, you can transfer directly from an individual retirement account (IRA) to a charity. You may want to meet early with your IRA trustee, so transaction is completed by year end.
