In addition to cash donations, there are many other ways you can support the American Sexual Health Association.
Memorial and Tribute Donations
Make a gift in honor or in memory of someone special. This is a unique and wonderful way to acknowledge them. A letter will be sent to his or her family to inform them of your generous gift, though the amount of your contribution will remain confidential.
Your gift could be matched dollar for dollar! Many companies offer matching gift programs that will double, even triple, a donation's value. If you have questions about your company's matching gift program, please contact your human resources office.
Does your employer participate in a United Way Campaign, a State Employees Combined Campaign or the Combined Federal Campaign? ASHA benefits from campaigns throughout the country and we thank you for your ongoing support!
Electronic Transfer: The most common method of gifting Securities to the American Sexual Health Association involves your broker electronically transferring shares. Shares can be transferred to ASHA via Northwestern Mutual Investment Services. ASHA's account number is QW1205105 and our DTC number is 0443. Typically a letter of instruction - signed by the account owner - is the only required documentation needed. The letter of instruction should include ASHA's DTC number and account number. If you have questions, please contact Lynn Barclay at (800) 552-4375.
Physical Transfer: You can forward your stock certificate(s) directly to ASHA. Each stock certificate requires a stock power form. The stock powers should be signed and the signature guaranteed by your local bank or broker. Mail the stock powers, along with a letter indicating your intent to make a gift, to the address below. Under separate cover, send the stock certificate(s) to the same address. For additional protection, we recommend that you send the certificate(s) via registered mail.
What are planned gifts? Planned gifts include gifts through your will (bequest), gifts of life insurance and charitable trusts.
Bequest: Many of our supporters make charitable gifts by naming the American Sexual Health Association as a beneficiary in their wills. The federal government encourages these gifts or bequests, by allowing an unlimited estate tax charitable deduction.
- Specific Bequest: You designate a specific dollar amount, specific percentage, or specific property to the American Sexual Health Association.
- Residual Bequest: Your estate will pay all debts, taxes, expenses, and specific bequests. The remaining amount--the residue--will be transferred to the American Sexual Health Association.
- Contingent Bequest You can ask that the American Sexual Health Association receive all or a portion of your estate only under certain circumstances. For example, you can name the American Sexual Health Association as a beneficiary of your estate only if there are no surviving close family members. Childless couples sometimes provide for the entire estate to go to the surviving spouse, or if the spouse does not survive, to the American Sexual Health Association.
