Giving to AHLA
Ways to Give
Celebrate the health law community by donating to recognize a friend or colleague who has made an impact on your life or career.
Many donors make gifts of appreciated stocks, bonds, mutual funds or exchange-traded funds because they can have an immediate impact on our mission while maximizing potential tax benefits and avoiding capital gains tax.
Bequests by Will
One of the simplest planned gifts is a bequest through your will in which you designate either a specific dollar amount or a percentage of your estate after other disbursements. In addition to supporting AHLA, it serves as an example to your heirs of the values and ideals you hold dear. A bequest also can reduce the amount of your taxable estate, which may increase the actual amount available to loved ones.

A beneficiary designation gift is a simple and affordable way to support the next generation of health law professionals. You can designate AHLA as a beneficiary of a retirement plan, investment or bank account, or your life insurance policy. By making AHLA your beneficiary, you will impact the lives of current and future health law professionals.
A donor-advised fund (DAF) is a centralized charitable account. It allows charitably-inclined individuals, familys, and businesses to make tax-deductible donations of cash, publically-traded stock, and in some cases, certain illiquid assets, to a public charity that sponsors a DAF program.
Donors 70 1/2 or older with a traditional IRA are eligible to make a tax-free donation to AHLA directly from their IRA account. IRA gifts can fulfill Required Minimum Distributions (RMDs), reduce taxable income, and have an immediate impact on AHLA. IRA Charitable Rollovers are also sometimes referred to as Qualified Charitable Distributions (QCDs).
