At MIT, that can mean last minute philanthropic gifts from donors aiming to make the December 31 tax deadline. But whether the gift is part of an end-of-year tax strategy or an act of generosity, all gifts $2,000 or more, now or at any time of the year, should go straight to the Office of the Recording Secretary (W98-300).
