MEMORIAL GIFTS

Honor the memory of a loved one, or celebrate the accomplishment of a friend or family member by making a memorial or tribute donation to the AGMA Foundation. When you make a memorial or tribute donation, the AGMA Foundation sends an acknowledgement card to the family or the honoree. Don’t forget to include the name and address of the appropriate person(s). The amount of the gift always remains confidential.

To contribute a memorial gift, please e-mail foundation@agma.org.

PLANNED GIVING

There are many ways that gifts can be planned to fulfill your charitable goals while enhancing your financial security. Some types of planned gifts, such as charitable gift annuities and charitable remainder unitrusts, provide a lifetime income. Consult your attorney or other qualified advisors to help you build an estate plan that suits your wishes.

Bequests

You can support the AGMA Foundation through a bequest made in your will or family trust document. You may choose to designate a specific gift or a percentage of your estate, or you may name the AGMA Foundation as a conditional beneficiary.

Sample bequest language: I give, devise, and bequeath $______ (amount) or _____% (percentage or residue of my estate) to the AGMA Foundation, 1001 N. Fairfax Street, Suite 500, Alexandria VA, 22015, a not-for-profit corporation for its charitable uses as directed by its Board of Trustees.

Gifts of Appreciated Stock

Your donation of a gift of stock to the AGMA Foundation can have an impact on the future gear industry workforce, and you may save capital gains taxes. Consult your accountant or attorney and the AGMA Foundation to find out how you can transfer these assets to the Foundation.
