Ways to Give
Many types of gifts, from cash to stock or real estate, may be made during your lifetime and allow ASA to put your donation to work right away. You may also support ASA with a deferred or planned gift that provides income to ASA in the future.
Charitable donations, whether immediate or deferred, may offer significant tax benefits. While ASA can provide general information about the tax-deductibility of a donation, donors are encouraged to consult with a financial advisor about their specific circumstances.
Cash donation: Cash gifts can be made by check or credit card. They can be a one-time or a monthly donation.
Gifts of Appreciated Securities: Gifts of stock can be structured to reduce capital gains taxes on stock sales. For a gift of stock please use ASA’s account with Vanguard. Download ASA's stock transfer information.pdf or contact Renee Bouplon for more information.
