Workplace Giving

Workplace giving programs allow employees to make regular tax-deductible donations to eligible charities through their company’s’ payroll system. Employees may contribute a set amount per paycheck, or make a one-time gift.

Your pledged donation amount is automatically deducted from payroll, offering a convenient means of giving without losing the tax benefits of charitable giving.

Many workplaces, from private companies, military organizations, and federal, state and city governments coordinate charitable giving during a specified open enrollment period. Please ask your HR department for your company’s specific process.



Donate stock or any other appreciated assets and receive valuable tax benefits.

One of the most advantageous ways to contribute to AIM is through a gift of stock. Making a gift of securities is simple and offers a number of valuable financial benefits:

  • You can donate appreciated stocks, bonds, or mutual funds
  • The total value of the stock upon transfer is tax-deductible
  • There is no obligation to pay any capital gains taxes on the appreciation

A donor advised fund (DAF) is a charitable giving program that allows you to combine the most favorable tax benefits with the flexibility to support your favorite causes.

How does it work?

  • Establish your DAF by making an irrevocable, tax deductible donation to a public charity that sponsors a DAF program.
  • Advise the investment allocation of the donated assets
  • Recommend grants to the charities you support, with the option of being recognized or remaining anonymous.

If you have one of the leading donor advised funds, DAF Direct directly enables you to recommend grants to AIM. If you don’t see your DAF listed through DAF Direct below, contact us at for instructions.


There are a variety of ways to honor a loved one who has passed, is struggling, or is deserving of your special recognition. One FREE way is to set up a GoFundMe fundraiser and publicize it to your friends:
