How to Donate

This year we have some new payment options!  You are welcome to donate to our scholarships and funds by check, as usual, or by PayPay or Credit Card, as many have done for branch events.  Both of these methods, while convenient, mean you are using post-tax money.

Using Pre-tax Money

Donating stocks, bonds, or mutual funds may be more advantageous, depending on your tax situation. You may be able to avoid paying capital gains tax on your profit while still getting a tax deduction if you itemize. Or, you can donate a portion of your IRA’s Required Minimum Distribution. You may be able to avoid paying tax on the amount while supporting AAUW’s programs.  As always, consult your financial and tax advisor to find out what’s best for your individual situation.

If you are interested in any of these pre-tax options, contact Linda Barker at Linda_barker@comcast.net or 703-898-8260. Linda will be the Director for Development in our 2017-18 season and will send you a Gift of Securities Form. We’ll make it easy for you!
