Gifts for the Future

Your gift can help ensure that America’s future seniors, our children and grandchildren, will be served and supported by AARP Foundation’s programs. Create your legacy by naming AARP Foundation in your will or by providing a charitable contribution through a life income gift. Gift plans can create benefits for you as well as for AARP Foundation.

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
Brokerage: State Street, Boston
DTC Number: 997
Account Name: AARP Foundation
Federal Tax ID#: 52-0794300
