Support us as Individuals

The issue of health and well-being has never been more important to college students. On every campus, we’re helping to push the boundaries of how to improve health and well-being, while shaping healthier lifestyles including tackling the mental, social, and community factors that are intertwined into each issue .

For individuals we offer a variety of giving options to accommodate your philanthropic interests and goals. You may designate your gift or pledge to your area of interest or to ACHF’s area of greatest need. Through the following giving options, you can create new opportunities for the students served through the programs and services funded by the Foundation.

BY CREDIT CARD

Quickly and easily make a gift of any size online using Visa®, MasterCard®, American Express™, or DISCOVER® cards. If you prefer, the ACHF staff can process a credit card gift via telephone. Contact an ACHF staff member by calling (443) 270 4555 or email: ACHF@ACHA.org to request someone call you about making a gift or to ask any questions you might have.

CORPORATE MATCHING

Your employer may double or even triple your gift to ACHF. Your employer’s Human Resources department can provide details and the matching gift form to include with your check.

STOCK GIFTS

By donating common stocks, bonds, mutual funds, and other appreciated securities, donors may also receive tax benefits that include avoiding long-term capital gains tax and obtaining deductions for their annual income tax filing. In most cases, donors can maximize their contribution through gifts of stock by transferring these appreciated securities to ACHF directly, rather than liquidating them first and donating the proceeds of that sale to the foundation.

Before directing a transfer agent to transfer a stock gift to the foundation, contact an ACHF staff member by calling (443) 270 4555 or email: ACHF@ACHA.org to learn how best to expedite your donation.

ESTATE PLAN GIFTS

Donors can provide support for ACHF at the time of their death through a number of estate planning vehicles that, in addition to many of the opportunities outlined previously, include retirement plan assets, charitable remainder trusts, gift annuities, and partnership interests. Some planned giving options include opportunities for the donor to receive return income or other financial benefits during his or her lifetime in return for the contribution, as well as immediate tax-deductible benefits without the penalty of capital gains taxes on the transfer.

Contact an ACHF staff member by calling (443) 270 4555 or email: ACHF@ACHA.org to request someone call you about making an estate gift.
