Monthly Giving: Friends of AARP Foundation

A monthly gift to AARP Foundation will provide steady resources that we can rely on to help seniors in need. Every month, Friends of AARP Foundation will have the satisfaction of knowing that their kindness is giving another, less fortunate senior a helping hand.

Becoming a Friend of AARP Foundation is a voluntary commitment. If for any reason you need to change or cancel your monthly donation, you may do so at any time by simply: 

Gift of Stock

A gift of stock is one of the simplest and most tax-savvy ways to support AARP Foundation. Just transfer appreciated securities (stocks, bonds) you have owned for at least a year to AARP Foundation, pay no capital gains tax and take a charitable deduction for the full fair-market value of your gift. Most importantly, you are helping improve the lives of low-income, vulnerable older people. The entire transaction can be handled electronically — saving you time and effort. Simply supply your broker with the following information:

AARP Foundation Broker: Karen Colitti
Phone Number: 617-664-9313
Email: kecolitti@statestreet.com
Brokerage: State Street, Boston
DTC Number: 997
Account Name: AARP Foundation
Federal Tax ID#: 52-0794300
Fund: H41G

If you have any questions, please contact Heather R. Narvaez at 202-434-6120 or HNarvaez@aarp.org. Stock or mutual funds can also be used to make gifts that provide you and another beneficiary with income for life. For a detailed description, contact Marva Thomas at 800-775-6776, option 6, for a personalized proposal based on your financial circumstances.
