Join our Monthly Giving Team:

Our Monthly Giving Team is a special group of donors who make a difference through recurring donations. Monthly gifts from team members help pay for education, support and research that enrich lives. A small monthly amount can have a huge impact!

Honor a loved one with a Tribute Gift:

In lieu of a birthday or holiday gift, make a donation to APDA in honor of a beloved friend or family member.  Or throw a party to honor someone impacted by PD, and ask guests to make a charitable gift.

Matching Gifts: 

Many employers offer programs to match charitable contributions made by their employees. So, if your employer has such a program, the impact of your gift to APDA may be doubled! Check with your HR Department to see if your company has a matching gift policy.

DIY Fundraising:

Throw a party to honor a loved one impacted by Parkinson’s. Plan a bake sale, chili cook-off or yard sale to benefit APDA. Or ask friends to support you in an adventure such running or biking for the fight against Parkinson’s disease. Create your campaign online with APDA’s support: www.apdaparkinson.org/get-involved/diy-fundraising/

Stock Gifts:

Did you know APDA accepts gifts of publicly traded securities? So, you can gift stock to APDA, rather than selling it and donating the proceeds. By doing this, you may receive the federal AND state charitable deduction and avoid paying capital gains tax.  Both you and APDA benefit!

IRA Designation:   

Make a difference today and save on taxes. It’s possible when you support APDA through your IRA.  If you are 70½ Years Old and Older, you can give any amount (up to a maximum of $100,000) per year from your IRA directly to a qualified charity such as the APDA without having to pay income taxes on the money. Gifts of any value $100,000 or less are eligible for this benefit and you can feel good knowing that you are making a difference at APDA. This popular gift option is commonly called the IRA charitable rollover, but you may also see it referred to as a qualified charitable distribution, or QCD for short.

Estate Planning:

You can name APDA Missouri Chapter as a beneficiary in your will.

Beneficiary Designation:

You may transfer assets to APDA by naming APDA Missouri Chapter as a beneficiary. You can name us as a beneficiary in your life insurance policy, or retirement or pension plan.
