Memorials and Tributes
Donations can be made in memory of a deceased family member or friend, or in honor of a living person or special occasion, such as a birthday, wedding, or anniversary.

Donations of Appreciated Stocks and Bonds
These gifts can provide multiple tax benefits. They are often tax deductible, and you may bypass capital gains tax that would otherwise be due if you sold the donated assets. All stock gifts should be electronically sent to: Mesirow Financial - DTC #0026, Account #WMP003607, Alzheimer's Association Tax ID #13-3039601.
Matching Gift Program

A charitable gift annuity is a contract between you and the Alzheimer's Association. You can transfer cash or securities to the Alzheimer's Association and we pay you a fixed amount for life, based on your age. Payments may be set up for you alone or for you and one other person. The Association will benefit by receiving the remaining value. A charitable gift annuity provides you with the security of fixed payments for your lifetime as well as the satisfaction of knowing you are helping advance the efforts of the Alzheimer's Association.
