Click the items below for more ways to give:

Give Stocks

Your gift of stocks can provide significant tax and financial benefits, such as bypassing capital gains taxes and providing an income tax deduction – both of which effectively reduce the cost of donating.

To make your gift of stocks, please contact APSA’s Development Team at [email protected] or 202-349-9357.

It is also easy to designate the American Political Science Association as a beneficiary of your brokerage account. Simply name American Political Science Association as the beneficiary on your account’s beneficiary designation form.

Give to APSA in Your Will

In as little as one sentence, you can complete your gift to APSA in your will or trust. You continue to have full lifetime control of your assets and can adjust your gift at any time during your life.

Provide our suggested gift language to your advisor and then let us know about your planned gift: “I give to American Political Science Association, Tax ID 53-0200001, the sum of $_____ [or _____% of the rest, residue and remainder of my estate].”

Gift of Life Insurance

You can make an immediate gift of life insurance without transferring policy ownership.

For any life insurance policy you own, you can name the American Political Science Association as the beneficiary. Simply complete the form supplied by your insurer.

Retirement Account Gifts

You can give directly to a charity like APSA using your Individual Retirement Account (IRA). If you are at least 70.5 years old, you can bypass income taxes on the money and your IRA gift can satisfy all or part of your required minimum distribution for year.

Let your IRA administrator know that you want to make a Qualified Charitable Distribution to APSA and ask them to make a direct transfer to APSA or have the administrator send a check from your account to us.

It is also easy to designate the American Political Science Association as a beneficiary of your IRA or other retirement accounts. Simply name American Political Science Association as the beneficiary on your account’s beneficiary designation form.

Gifts from a Donor-Advised Fund

If you have a Donor-Advised Fund, you can recommend how much and how often you want to distribute money from that fund to APSA.

Simply ask your fund administrator to make a grant to APSA using our EIN: 53-0200001.

It is also easy to designate the American Political Science Association as a beneficiary of the remaining assets of your donor-advised fund after your lifetime. Simply name American Political Science Association as the beneficiary on your fund’s beneficiary designation form.

Donate Your Book Royalties

All you need to do is ask your publisher to send your royalties directly to APSA. Donating book royalties is a simple way to support our work while promoting your book, and when marketing your publication, let readers know that book royalities will be donated to the Association. 

Charitable Shopping

If you shop online, start at smile.amazon.com and set APSA as your designated charity. It’s the same Amazon you know, but with a donation built in. At no extra cost to you, the AmazonSmile Foundation will donate to APSA.

Employer-Matching Gifts

Your employer may have a matching gifts program. If you are affiliated with a company that matches contributions, your gift to APSA may be matched, doubled, or — in some instances — more than doubled.

Find out if your employer participates by checking with your Human Resources team. APSA is also registered to receive matching employer donations through Benevity and YourCause.

Facebook Fundraisers

Invite your family and friends to support APSA by hosting a fundraiser on Facebook to celebrate birthdays and special occasions.

From your Facebook newsfeed, click “create” and select “Fundraiser.” Then type in “American Political Science Association” and Facebook will create a fundraising event for you.
