During your lifetime, you can recommend a grant from your Donor-Advised Fund (DAF) to impact lives through The Aplastic Anemia & MDS International Foundation (AAMDSIF). A DAF is a philanthropic vehicle that may provide you with an immediate income tax charitable deduction while enabling you to support the charities that are meaningful to you. A grant from your DAF can provide answers, support, and hope for patients and their families.

It’s easy for you to work with your DAF to support AAMDSIF. Simply contact your fund manager and recommend AAMDSIF along with the amount of the grant.

Please be sure to tell us about your grant so we can thank you for your generous support. Contact us at (301) 279-7202 or at development@aamds.org.

If your Company offers a matching gift program, ask your Human Resources Department for your company’s matching gift policy and forms. Complete the necessary forms and send to us with your contribution. We will then send a verification to your company so that they can process and send us the matching gift.
