7 Ways You Can Donate to AHWA Foundation

These days, there are more ways than ever for you to donate to your favorite charity. If you want to contribute to AHWA Foundation, it can be as simple as writing a check or volunteering a few hours of your time. You could also consider setting up a foundation or holding a fundraising drive. Even the smallest donations can make a real difference. Thanks to supporters like you, AHWA Foundation can spread the word about chronic disease prevention to more people throughout the World.

Here are seven easy ways you can help AHWA Foundation in our mission to raise awareness for proactive health and wellness:

1: Give Online

Simple and convenient, online donations are a great way to make a one-time or recurring donation. You can donate directly via our website or set up a recurring payment with your credit or debit card. You can also use various e-payment options. Donating online is secure and very simple — you just register a valid form of payment, specifying how much you want to give and how often.

Online giving is increasingly popular, especially with younger people. It’s easy to give money this way, especially with smartphone apps.

2: Write a Check

If you’re not so tech-savvy and don’t want to give online, don’t worry. Writing a check is still one of the most common ways to give money today. While digital payments are simple, a check can give you the confidence of a more familiar payment method — especially if you’re giving a more considerable amount. A check is an excellent option for a substantial one-off payment. It takes only a few minutes to write and mail a check — it’s a quick and easy way to make a difference.

3: Use a Donor-advised Fund

A donor-advised fund (DAF) is a great way to give if you want to make a larger donation that will keep working long-term. A donor-advised fund is an account for charitable giving. They’re administered by sponsoring organizations and are explicitly designed to be accessible and easy to use. DAFs are also less expensive than some other ways of donating.

DAFs are started with a minimum donation, which is often only around $5,000. The administering financial institution invests the money. As the donor, you can then administer grants from this asset. You choose the recipient (in this case, AHWA Foundation).

DAFs have a lot of advantages. They make donating really easy and can also offer charitable tax deductions in some circumstances. DAFs can also provide help and information to support you in choosing other recipients based on your personal ideals.

4: Participate in a Giving Circle

Have you ever belonged to a book club? Maybe you’ve been part of an investment club. Giving circles work in a similar way. They’re fairly new but have become increasingly popular in recent years. Giving circles are fun as well as practical, allowing participants to raise money in a social and cooperative way. If you’re looking for a small, local group, then your immediate community is a good place to start. There are plenty of larger circles, though — many operate state-wide and even nationally.

5: Volunteer Your Time

If you’re not blessed with an abundance of spare cash but do have some free time, volunteering can be a great way to contribute. Volunteer work has always been a great way to contribute, and now there are more opportunities than ever. You can volunteer in many different ways, whether it’s for a short-term project (like a fundraiser or an information drive), or a long-term commitment.

You can volunteer in person, of course, but that’s not always possible for everyone. Today, virtual volunteering is increasingly popular. You can volunteer to make phone calls, or volunteer online. Even if you only have a few hours a week, your efforts can have a big impact.

6: Donating Your Clothes, Car, etc.

Do you have old items just cluttering up your home? Many charities accept these as direct donations. You can also sell your unwanted possessions, such as vehicles, good used clothes, books and electronics, as part of your fundraising efforts. As well as sites like eBay and Amazon, there are local trading opportunities where you can turn that clutter into donatable cash. You can also sell via several phone apps that will connect you to local buyers.

Donating in this way has a double benefit. You get to support AHWA and your other favorite charities while also freeing up valuable space in your home. You can also pat yourself on the back for reducing waste and shrinking your carbon footprint.

7: Set Up a Foundation

Setting up a foundation might sound a bit ambitious, but it’s a very effective way to fund charitable activities for donors with a high net worth. Private or family foundations number in the tens of thousands, ranging from large and well-known organizations to small family foundations with less than a million in assets.

Even if your foundation is relatively small, many regulations are surrounding this kind of operation. You’ll need qualified legal advice to make sure that you’re in compliance with the IRS. You can find plenty of information online to help walk you through the process of setting up a foundation.

Whatever way you choose to donate, you can be sure that your contribution is making a real impact on other peoples’ lives. Large or small, your generous donation matters.
