Planned giving

Charitable giving has become an important tool in estate planning. Through a planned gift to AAUE you can help minimize your tax burden: Planned gifts produce rights to a non-refundable tax credit for a percentage of their value, depending on the type of gift. Here are a few options you may want to explore: 

  • Gifts of securities,
  • Designate AAUE as owner or beneficiary of your life insurance policy,
  • Bequest a specific amount, a percentage, or the remainder of your estate, an asset, or even a percentage of your retirement fund.

 For more information on planned giving, contact us at (916) 337-4908 or email us. 

Sponsor a school

"Sponsor a school" is to support all the children of a school in Upper-Egypt who cannot afford to pay their tuition fees. You will be regularly informed on your sponsorship progress and results. You become a true partner of this concrete education and development initiative. 

To sponsor the education of a child represents a $30/month or $360/year commitment. You financial participation is matched to the project you wish to support (education or health and nutrition).  In addition to regular information received directly from the field, you will receive mail directly from representatives from our partner AUEED. If you were to travel to Egypt, we could facilitate a meeting between yourself and those of the school representatives and student beneficiaries. 

To learn more, please communicate with us by email or call us at (916) 337-4908 or ask your financial planner or notary to assist you in choosing the right option for you.

 

Ask your employer to match your gift


Nothing could be simpler! Just check with your employer to see whether your company sponsors a gift matching program. If it does, that means it’s committed to make a gift equal to yours—this doubles your contribution to AAUE!

All you need to do is fill out the matching gift form provided by your employer, and send it to us along with your gift. Every donor will receive a tax receipt for the full amount of the gift.


Please note that AAUE has adopted a Donor Bill of Rights, does not ever solicit door to door and does not raise funds through telemarketing

 

THANKS FOR YOUR GENEROSITY!
