Make a lasting tribute to the memory of a loved one, friend, co-worker, companion animal, or research animal with a gift to the AALAS Foundation. The family will receive an acknowledgement of your gift if that information is included on the contribution form/envelope you send in with your gift.
The AALAS Foundation has memorial cards that can be used to express your sympathy to the family. Use the enclosed contribution envelope to mail your gift to our office. To receive a card, click here.
United Way Donation (Choose #060730)
Did you know that, if you do not designate a specific charity for your donation, you inadvertently could be undermining our profession? Your donations to the local United Way or Combined Federal campaigns could be going to groups opposed to laboratory animal-based research. Both of these umbrella campaigns automatically allocate some of the donations to smaller non-profit organizations and, unfortunately, some of these organizations are opposed to the appropriate use of laboratory animals. The AALAS Foundation is not automatically allocated a portion of your donation; rather you must designate the AALAS Foundation as your intended recipient. To ensure that your United Way donation goes to the AALAS Foundation, write on the donation card the AALAS Foundation’s United Way number, 060730.
A planned giving program helps you enjoy tax savings through careful structuring and timing of your donation. While the actual tax benefits are determined by several factors including your tax bracket, the type of gift, etc., careful planning can provide benefits for both you, the donor, and the AALAS Foundation.
Bequests are the most common form of planned gift, with a specific dollar amount named or a residual bequest to the AALAS Foundation. Bequests frequently are used to support an organization’s endowment as a way to help the organization develop a stable funding base for the future.
Some of the common assets given to charitable organizations include stocks and bonds and mutual funds. The AALAS Foundation has letters of transfer that can be used if you decide to give your gift in this form. Please contact the AALAS Foundation for further details at email@example.com or 901.754.8620.
If you have other assets you would like to transfer, please contact the AALAS Foundation. Each gift must be evaluated individually, and we will be happy to work with you.

By matching the employee’s charitable giving to qualified nonprofits, the company supports their employees’ desire to give something back to the community. Please check with your company to see if a matching gifts program is offered where you work.
