How can I give? Description

Check Please make checks payable to GAIS and send it to:

Gifts of Securities Giving a gift of appreciated stocks, bonds or mutual funds can be to your financial advantage. In most cases you may claim a charitable income tax deduction for the full fair market value on the shares and avoid capital gains tax. Please consult your financial advisor to clarify the advantages. If you intend to give a gift of securities, please call (or have your broker call) the GAIS business office.
Matching Gifts Many employers offer programs that will match or even multiply an employee’s gift to GAIS. This is an easy way to dramatically increase the impact of your contribution. Simply obtain a form from your company’s Matching Gift Coordinator (usually in the Human Resources or Community Relations Department), fill it out and send it in with your contribution.
Shop Amazon.com or eScrip By shopping on Amazon.com or by registering your loyalty or credit cards at eScrip you can earn donations for GAIS.
