Ways to Give

How Your Contribution Helps

Monthly Giving

Become a monthly donor with our new recurring gift program. Your monthly donation helps form a predictable source of income AFTD can count on to support our mission to fight this disease. It’s the easiest way to give and ensure that AFTD moves toward a world where frontotemporal degeneration is understood, effectively diagnosed, treated, cured and ultimately prevented. Set up a monthly gift today.

Stock Donation

Donating stock is perhaps the most cost-effective asset to use in making a charitable gift.  When you transfer ownership of long-term holdings to AFTD, you receive a charitable deduction for their full market value—and you incur no capital gains tax (subject to IRS deduction limits).

Because electronic transfers are made without identifying the donor, please alert AFTD in advance about the stock and number of shares you plan to give.  You can do so by e-mailing development@theaftd.org or calling AFTD at 267.514.7221.

According to IRS regulations, the date of your gift corresponds to the date it arrives in our possessions (for transfer from brokerage account to brokerage account).

Following is the information you will need to make a stock transfer to AFTD.

Account name: The Association for Frontotemporal Degeneration (AFTD)
DTC number: 0701
Account number: 8AL00030

Support an AFTD Online Fundraiser

AFTD uses an online fundraising platform called Classy to allow grassroots fundraisers to create their own web pages to raise money for the organization.  Click here to view our main AFTD page.

Employer Matching Gifts

After making a gift to AFTD check with your employer (Human Resources Dept.) to see if they have an employee matching gift program to support charitable giving to nonprofits.  If they do you will be asked to complete a brief form and send it to AFTD to provide additional information.  AFTD will send the form back or submit the information online.  After the process is complete your company will make a matching gift to AFTD.  Matching gifts are an easy way to double your donation.
