Ways to Give
Gifts of Cash
Make an online gift today or call 518.694.7156 (toll free - 888.203.8010). We accept MasterCard, Visa or checks (send to 106 New Scotland Ave., Albany, NY 12208), made payable to Albany College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences.
Gifts of Securities
Gifts of appreciated long-term securities, including stocks, bonds and mutual fund shares, can generate favorable tax benefits. At the time of the gift, the donor receives a tax deduction equivalent to the fair market value of such securities when owned for more than a year.
If you are making a stock donation, your financial advisor or broker will need to know the Albany College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences donation account number (81H-04000), routing number (5198). The account is with Merrill Lynch in Albany, N.Y., and the broker is Lynn Lyttle, who can be reached at 585.899.2514 or email@example.com. Please allow a number of business days for your transaction(s) to clear.
If you have any questions, contact Vicki DiLorenzo at 518.694.7331.
More than 6,000 companies, subsidiaries and corporate foundations currently match their employees' gifts to charitable organizations, such as ACPHS. To find out if the company you work for has a matching-gift program, contact your human resources office and follow the directions to initiate a match. If you need more information about matching gifts, call 518.694.7156 or 888.203.8010.
Memorial and Honor Gifts
Any gift can be made in memory of a friend or in honor of a professor, a loved one, a birthday, graduation, anniversary or any other significant event. Please specify whose honor or memory your gift is being made, and let us know to whom we should send notification of your gift. In some instances, special memorial funds are established that may become capital or endowed funds.
Although the outright gift of cash or appreciated securities is the most well known, there are several charitable gift options that provide the ability to support our programs in a manner that best suits your individual needs. Planned gifts to Albany College of Pharmacy may take many forms, real estate, life insurance or other personal property. Bequests, gift annuities, trusts and other planned gifts can be arranged. Please contact the Office of Institutional Advancement for more information
