Year End Donations

Year-End_Giving_BannerThe holiday season is always a great time to give and exercise the spirit of giving by donating to a qualified charitable organization. Although tax savings are not usually the primary reason for charitable giving, your gift may qualify for significant tax benefits while providing much needed capital for a charity like the Alzheimer’s Association. The rate of diagnosis is on the rise and due to the popularity of Colorado as a retirement destination, the demand for our programs and services is expected to increase dramatically in the next few years. While we work hard to engage the business community in sponsorships for our special events, as is true with most non-profits, our budget is offset by individual giving. As you do your research and make decisions about your end of year giving, we hope you think of the Alzheimer’s Association and the thousands of Coloradoans who need our help.

There are a number of ways you could make that gift to the Association:

Direct Contributions – Gifts enable the Colorado Chapter to continue serving individuals and families in communities throughout Colorado who are living with Alzheimer’s. Designate your gift for general programs and services or to a specific program or to research.

Memorials and Honorariums – A way for family and friends to honor the memory of their loved one or those celebrating special occasions such as a birthday, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day or an anniversary. Tree of Hope LeafTree of Hope – Each leaf on the mural, on display at the Denver office, is inscribed with the name of an individual, group or event being honored. Employee Giving Program – Contribute by designating a specific amount to be deducted from your paycheck. #EndAlz Shirt Planned GiftsInclude the Alzheimer’s Association in your estate plan which can be structured to provide tax advantages and a life income while accomplishing a charitable intent.

Car DonationDonate your car through Vehicles for Charity contributions to benefit the Alzheimer’s Association. Year-end charitable donations keep giving long after your gift is received. Your generous contribution is always appreciated especially in years where financial assets are still struggling to increase in value. -Robyn Moore, Chief Development Officer
