Support of Upcoming Events:
Throughout the year, we hold many events that not only raise funds but also raise awareness of the tremendous need. Click here for more information about how you can help us by supporting our events.
Memorial or Tribute Donations:
This is a wonderful way to honor a loved one and help fight this terrible disease. Please indicate with your donation:
1. The individual in whose memory or honor the donation is made.
2. The name and address where you would like an acknowledgement to be sent.
When we receive memorial or tribute donations, we send a thank you to the donor and an acknowledgement of the gift received to the family of the individual being honored.
Alois Society Membership:
With an annual donation of $1,000 or more, you will become a member of a select group of individuals who are committed to our mission. You may make your $1,000 contribution annually, semi-annually in donations of $500, or quarterly with donations of $250.
As a member of our Alois Society you will receive:
• Recognition in our newsletter as a member of the Amethyst Circle
• Recognition in the Annual Report mailed to all contributors
• A very special sterling silver lapel pin designed by jeweler Scott Petit
With a $10,000 contribution, you will be placed in The Dr. Alois Alzheimer Circle. At this level you will be considered a lifetime member of the Amethyst Circle. In addition to the listed benefits, our $10,000 donor names will be placed on a plaque that resides in the lobby of our state office.
A Gift of Stock:
A gift of cash results in a current income tax deduction. For a gift of appreciated securities that you have held more than one year, you have the added benefit of owing no tax on the gain.
You may name the Alzheimer's Association, West Virginia Chapter as a beneficiary for a planned gift, such as a bequest or trust. It can be as simple as naming the WV Alzheimer's Association in your will, or as detailed as establishing a charitable remainder trust. Not only can you receive the tax benefits of such a gift, but your support will become a legacy that lives on.
To choose the right giving method from the many available options, you must consider your unique financial circumstances and your goals. You may decide to make a planned gift based on humanitarian considerations, financial considerations or for reasons close to your heart.
For additional information about making a lasting gift to the Alzheimer's Association, West Virginia Chapter, please contact Evan Osborn, Development Director, at 800.272.3900 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
