YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE – HERE ARE 13 WAYS!

Armenia Fund USA’s many projects offer multiple opportunities in which our donors can make a difference in the lives of men, women, and children in Armenia and Nargorno-Karabakh. And, because each donor’s interest and ability differs, below is a list of some of the ways that YOU can give to Armenia Fund USA.

VOLUNTEERISM

Our volunteers are the life-blood of our activities and fund-raising events. From people in the local New York area who help with our annual phone-a-thon and telethon activities to those people who help with our regional events, we simply have to say “THANK YOU.” We always have need for graphic designers, writers, special events regional host and committee members, and other volunteers. Check the Volunteer Opportunities page for more information.

CASH GIFTS

Until the day money grows on trees and we have an orchard of our own, cash gifts will remain the critical underpinning of our operations. To donate today, please go to our Online Donation page. Or, you can mail a gift directly to our offices at 594 Valley Health Plaza, Paramus, NJ 07652.

MONTHLY GIFTS

To make a recurring monthly gift by credit card or through your checking account, please go to our Online Donation page. Also, you can contact our offices at 212-689-5307.

GIFTS TO MEMORIALIZE OR HONOR THAT SPECIAL PERSON

Donors often wish to make a donation in memoriam or in honor of someone special or “in lieu of flowers”. Such donations will leave a lasting legacy that builds sustainable infrastructure and social foundations in Armenia and Karabakh. You can make such a gift by visiting our Online Donation page or sending your gift to our offices. If you would like a card sent by Armenia Fund USA to the honoree or to the family of someone being memorialized, please be sure we have their address. The names of honorees and those memorialized are published in our newsletters.

CORPORATE MATCHING GIFTS

Many companies, small and large, allocate funds to support non-profit organizations that their employees contribute to. Matching gifts are an easy way to increase your giving without taking another dollar out of your pocket. Please check a list of companies that maintain or in the past have maintained “Matching Gifts Programs”.

SAVINGS BONDS

Savings bonds are a great way to give “more.”

If you have purchased government savings bonds over the years, the income has grown. Although income tax is not incurred on the interest while it is being accrued, you, your beneficiaries and/or heirs will be taxed. Donation of saving bonds will ease burden of the taxpayer.

BEQUESTS

A bequest is a way to give to Armenia Fund USA through your will. Check with your attorney to learn about the ways this could help you save on or avoid estate and gift taxes.

GIFTS OF PROPERTY

Armenia Fund USA welcomes donations of homes, buildings and other property. Although there are some restrictions on what we are able to accept, we encourage donors to check with us.

GIFTS OF APPRECIATED SECURITIES

A gift of appreciated publicly traded securities can bring tax savings. It can allow you to avoid paying capital gains on the increased value of the security. Also, you may receive a charitable deduction for the full market value of the security when the gift is made, subject to the same limitations described under gifts of real estate.

LIFE INSURANCE GIFTS

While you are making plans for your family’s future, please consider remembering Armenia Fund USA as a beneficiary. Also, increasingly attractive to donors as a way to leave a legacy, is the contribution of an existing or new life insurance policy. By designating Armenia Fund USA as the owner and beneficiary of a life insurance policy, the premiums are tax deductible. (Check with your attorney or accountant to make sure this applies in your individual case.)

PLANNED GIFTS

There are four additional ways to give a planned gift, besides bequests, life insurance and others mentioned above. As with all gifts of this type, please check with your attorney or accountant to make sure a particular type of gift is in your best interest and available in your state.

  1. Charitable Gift Annuities (CGA) – A Charitable Gift Annuity is a contractual arrangement between you and Armenia Fund USA that is available in most states.
  2. Charitable Remainder Trusts – This is an easily established charitable trust that can provide a current charitable deduction to you in addition to income to you or Armenia Fund USA during your lifetime.
  3. Retained Life Estate – Transferring ownership of a personal residence while you are alive is a good way to support the organization while receiving income tax deductions and still enjoying the use of the property for the rest of your life.
  4. Charitable Lead Trust – This can offer individuals with very large estates a way to benefit a non-profit organization and still pass principal to family members with minimized tax penalties.

INDIVIDUAL RETIREMENT ACCOUNTS

By naming Armenia Fund USA as the beneficiary there will be no taxes incurred on the deferred income. If left to an individual, taxes will be incurred.
