With 5777 in the rear view mirror, it’s time to look ahead to the end of 2017. Now is the time to plan your year-end charitable contributions and tax credits, especially if you intend to reap the tax benefits of donating appreciated assets. Consider these ideas to make your giving more tax-effective, and to maximize the value of your year-end contributions.

Decide what type of impact you want to make: Understand what you want to accomplish, and whether you want to support many organizations or just a few. Some people enjoy making more modest gifts to a variety of organizations. Others choose just a few organizations so they can make larger donations, which can make a more significant impact.
