Ways to Give Join our Community Ways to Give to the APDA Iowa Chapter Your ongoing support makes our work possible. Please give what you can so that we may see a cure for Parkinson’s in our lifetimes. Donate Now Options for giving Matching Gifts Double – or possibly triple – the amount of your donation with a matching gift from your company. The Charitable Gift Annuity Charitable giving doesn’t have to be a one-way proposition. It is possible to make a charitable gift and actually have a stream of payments flow back to you – all while generating valuable income tax benefits. A charitable gift annuity lets you do just that. A Charitable Gift Annuity is simply a contract between a donor and a charity, such as the American Parkinson Disease Association, Inc., of a specified amount. We agree to make specified annual payments, paid in equal quarterly installments, for life to one or two beneficiaries. A Deferred Gift Annuity allows a person to make a current gift, delay receipt of the payments until some pre-selected future date, and still qualify for an income tax charitable deduction now. For retirement-planning purposes, this date can be selected to coincide with the anticipated date of retirement. A charitable gift annuity to the American Parkinson Disease Association, Inc. offers many attractive benefits for the security-minded individual. It is a powerful planning tool.
