Memorial or Tribute Gift
When you give a memorial or tribute gift to the Alpha Chi Omega Foundation to honor someone special, you’re expressing your love, admiration and gratitude in one of the most meaningful ways there is. Your gift will honor your loved one, create a lasting tribute and empower our members to impact their communities and world positively.
Gifts of Appreciated Securities
You can use stocks, bonds and mutual funds that have appreciated in value to support our shared vision. You may receive a charitable income tax deduction for the full market value of the stock (up to a maximum of 30% of your adjusted gross income) and avoid paying the capital gains tax on any increase in the value of the stock.
Corporate Matching Gifts
Many companies offer a matching gift program, where employees (and sometimes spouses of employees and retirees) can have their donation matched up to a certain amount. It is a great way to double your impact for Alpha Chi Omega. See if your employer will match your donation!
Qualified Charitable Distribution (QCD)
You can transfer funds from your IRA directly to the Alpha Chi Omega Foundation. This is an effective way to have an immediate impact and ensure our work of positioning our sisters for success continues. Here’s how it works:
- You must be 70 ½ or older.
- An individual may transfer up to a total of $100,000 per year and a married couple may give up to $200,000.
- Your gift must be transferred directly from the IRA account to the Alpha Chi Omega Foundation.
- Your gift is a transfer of funds from your IRA to the Alpha Chi Omega Foundation so it does not create taxable income for you and is not considered a charitable tax deduction.
- If you are 72 or older, the transfer of funds counts toward your annual Required Minimum Distribution (RMD) from your IRA.
