Donate Now Check donations can be sent to: APDA Midwest at PO Box 814, River Grove, IL 60171-0814. As a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization, APDA receives no government or public funds. We depend on the generosity of individuals like you to carry out our mission. Every penny counts in the fight against Parkinson’s, so any donation you can afford to give — whether a one-time gift, an annual gift, or a monthly gift — is greatly appreciated. Options for giving Memorial Gifts Make a donation in honor of someone special in your life. Commemorative Gifts Mark and preserve life’s special moments/milestones (birthdays, weddings, graduations, etc.). Restricted Gifts Indicate if you want to make a donation for a specific purpose such as research, education, young-onset network, or publications. Matching Gifts Double – or possibly triple – the amount of your donation with a matching gift from your company. Estate Planning/Charitable Gift Annuities Remember APDA in your will, or arrange for a future gift that provides an income stream and possible tax deferments for you and/or a spouse while you are still alive.

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.
