Other Ways to Give

Matching Gifts

Will your employer match your gift? Many companies offer matching gift programs and will match charitable contributions or volunteer service by their employees. To find out if your company has an employee matching gift program, contact your Human Resources department.

Gifts of Stock and Securities

Donating stock or securities is a great way to support UsAgainstAlzheimer's while receiving potential tax benefits. You could earn a charitable deduction for the full fair market value of the publicly traded stock or securities and avoid capital gains tax on securities that have increased in value, provided you have owned them for one year.

Please alert us in advance by providing the donor name and contact information, stock name, symbol and number of shares you plan to donate, so that we can ensure that you receive a tax receipt and acknowledgement.

For more information, or to notify of us a pending transfer, please contact Anne Adams at [email protected].

Gifting Retirement Assets

If you are over 70 ½, consider using unneeded retirement assets to support UsAgainstAlzheimer’s. A qualified charitable distribution (QCD) is a distribution of funds from your IRA directly to a qualified charitable organization like UsAgainstAlzheimer’s. Because the gift goes directly to the charity without passing through your hands, some or all of the gift may be excluded from your taxable income. To learn more, contact Anne Adams ([email protected]) or consult your tax advisor for information.

You could also choose to name UsAgainstAlzheimer’s as beneficiary of all or part of your IRA or retirement plan. There are some limitations, so please check with your tax advisor.

Donor Advised Funds

You can initiate a grant recommendation from your donor-advised fund – or DAF – directly to UsAgainstAlzheimer’s in two easy ways:

  • Make a one-time gift. Contact your Donor Advised Fund administrator and recommend a one-time grant directly to UsAgainstAlzheimer’s.
  • Create a monthly, recurring gift. Initiating an automatic monthly gift from your Donor Advised Fund is one of the easiest ways to support UsAgainstAlzheimer's all year long.

When making your grant recommendation, please use the following information:

5614 Connecticut Ave NW, #288
Washington, DC 20015-2604
