9 Ideas to Make Your Donation Extra Special:
1. Gifts In Memory And Honor
Please indicate if the gift is in memory or honor of someone so that person, or their loved ones, can be informed of your gift. You may also consider recognizing a special event, such as a birthday or anniversary, by inviting friends to use the opportunity to make a gift to the Epilepsy Foundation of Arizona.
2. Matching Gift Program
Does your company have a Matching Gift Program? Check with your Human Resources Department to find out. If yes, please request their matching gift forms and send it along with your donation or at year-end, as directed by your company. We will complete and return the form to your company. It’s a great way to double your generous gift!
3. Workplace-Giving Program
Some companies operate employee payroll deduction programs. Please consider designating us in your giving and encourage your company to add the Epilepsy Foundation of Arizona to their list of charities if they do not already include the Foundation.
When donating through the United Way, please complete the donor option section of your pledge form and indicate that you want to give your contribution to the Epilepsy Foundation of Arizona. If you are giving through the United Way use the following codes:

5. Gifts of Stock or Property
Please consider making gifts of appreciated stock or property. You may increase tax benefits by making capital gains a part of your gift. When you give appreciated assets, you avoid paying capital-gains tax on the increased value of your stock. You may also be entitled to a charitable deduction based on the stock’s current value. When considering gifts of stock, we recommend you consult with your financial adviser.
6. Vehicle Donations
Please consider donating your old car, boat, or RV to support our work. Proceeds benefit both the National and local Epilepsy Foundation. Please call the National Epilepsy Foundation at 1 (877) 332-2777 and indicate you want to help the Epilepsy Foundation of Arizona. We appreciate if you can also let us know so we can track proceeds.
7. Earmarked Gift (With Or Without Naming Opportunities)
An earmarked gift provides special naming opportunities that sustain support for our mission. Name a project, program, resource, fund, or volunteer position in honor of someone in your life, in memory of a loved one, or on the occasion of a special event. We encourage earmarked gifts for specific projects to be at least $2,500 per year. (Gifts of a smaller amount will be recognized in our materials as well.)
8. Planned Gifts
Thank you for your interest in naming the Epilepsy Foundation of Arizona in your Will. Please discuss with your financial adviser. We will be more than happy to answer your questions. These funds are utilized at the discretion of the Board of Directors, unless earmarked by the donor.
