Ways to Give

Gift Types

Gifts of Cash

One-time cash donations (via check or credit card) may be made at the time of membership renewal or throughout the year. Donations may support the general APS fund, a particular program, or a section fund.


Those interested in supporting APS on a more regular basis (monthly) or via installments (e.g. quarterly or biannually) may make a yearly pledge. Please fill out a pledge form and mail or fax to the Development Office. 

Non-Cash Gifts

Donations of stock certificates, other securities, and property are also tax deductible although special IRS rules apply for such gifts. Please refer to IRS Publication 526 for more information.

Matching Gifts

Some employers will match donations given to eligible organizations by their employees. If you are interested in such a gift and your (or your spouse’s) employer participates in a matching gift program, please contact your employer to see if APS is an eligible organization per their giving policies.

Major and Planned Giving

Major gifts are gifts valued at $25,000 or more. Planned gifts include gifts of charitable trusts, life insurance, retirement funds, and bequests. For more information on these gift types, please refer to our section on Major and Planned Giving.
