During this time of year, we realize that there are competing demands for your charitable giving. Please consider The Foundation at the top of your list because of what we do for seniors right here in Alabama.
The ARSEA Foundation was created in 1997, and it serves as the charitable arm of ARSEA/APEAL. Its mission is to promote and financially support activities and programs dedicated to improving the quality of life for older Alabamians.
We proudly support worthy organizations such as the Alabama Department of Senior Services, Alabama Silver Haired Legislature, the Alabama Senior Citizens Hall of Fame, and the UAB Center for Aging. But in order to continue serving these important programs, we need your financial assistance.
The ARSEA Foundation is a certified 501(c)(3) charitable organization so your donations are tax deductible under IRS regulations. Monetary donations are acknowledged with a letter which can be used for tax purposes.
There are many ways to support the ARSEA Foundation, and we hope you will consider making a contribution in one of categories listed below:
General Donations – We appreciate any donation, no matter how big or small. Every contribution helps! The generosity of our members allows us to achieve our mission more effectively.
End-of-Year Giving – Charitable contributions are deductible for donors who itemize deductions when filing their annual tax returns. The deduction limits for gifts to public charities in 2022 are 60% of AGI for contributions of cash and 30% of adjusted gross income for contributions of non-cash assets. Donating cash from the sale of depreciated securities, offsetting capital gains tax and satisfying an IRA required minimum distribution are good financial strategies for end-of-year giving.
In Remembrance – More families request donations to a favorite cause "in lieu of flowers" after a loved one passes. Flowers fade, but a donation will help someone who is living. Should you choose to donate in memory of someone, their family will receive a card notifying them of your gift. The monetary amount is not shared with the family.
Honor Someone – Donating in someone’s name is a unique and meaningful way to honor an extraordinary person or commemorate a special occasion. An honorarium is also a unique gift idea for the person that has everything or a simple “thank you” to someone special. The honoree will receive a card notifying him or her of your gift. The monetary amount is not shared with the honoree.
Plaza of Memories – Leave a forever legacy by purchasing an engraved brick in the “Plaza of Memories” as a permanent part of the landscape at our office complex in Montgomery. These bricks are a lasting memorial to honor those who have contributed to the growth and development of ARSEA/APEAL. The cost per brick is $125. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can provide the appropriate form for this purchase.
