How to get custom post type title, excerpt, thumbnail and permalink by post ID?

Hi there,
I have to generate several "loops" to get the title, excerpt, thumbnail and permalink of a custom post type 'charity' by post ID, because I need to target each ID with a special class (absolute-positioned map pointers).
Can you help me adjust my code so I can get it to work? What I have so far doesn't work:
<span id="chty_17">
						<?php // Charity ThirtySix  
                        $args = array('post_type'=> 'charity','post__in' => array(36));
                        $custom_query = get_posts($args);
                        foreach ($custom_query as $post) :
                        setup_postdata($post); ?>
                        <dt><?php the_title; ?></dt>
                        <?php echo get_the_post_thumbnail(); ?>
                        <h2><?php the_title; ?></h2>
                        <p><?php the_excerpt; ?></p>
                        <p><a class="more" href="<?php echo get_post_permalink();?>">Find out more &raquo;</a></p></dd>
                        <?php endforeach;

Open in new window

This code only displays the thumbnail and permalink correctly. I tried other options like the below, but the excerpt isn't included:
<?php $post_17 = get_post(17); // ABORIGINAL CHRISTIAN VOICE NETWORK ?>
                        <dt><?php echo $post_17->post_title; ?></dt>
                        <?php echo get_the_post_thumbnail('17'); ?>
                        <h2><?php echo $post_17->post_title; ?></h2>
                        <p><?php echo $post_17->post_content; ?></p>
                        <p><a class="more" href="<?php echo get_post_permalink('17');?>">Find out more &raquo;</a></p></dd>

I have achived what I wanted with WP Query:

$query1 = new WP_Query(array('post_type' => 'charity','p' => '17'));
                              if ($query1->have_posts()) : while($query1->have_posts()) : $query1->the_post();?>
                              <dt><?php the_title(); ?></dt>
                        <?php echo get_the_post_thumbnail(); ?>
                        <h2><?php the_title(); ?></h2>
                        <p><?php the_excerpt(); ?></p>
                        <p><a class="more" href="<?php the_permalink();?>">Find out more &raquo;</a></p></dd>
                              <?php endwhile; else : endif; wp_reset_postdata(); ?>
