Special Occasion Cards Looking for a gift for the person that has everything? Want to do something meaningful for a special occasion? Make a donation to APDA Northwest and we will send a card letting them know you donated in their honor. It’s a great way to recognize holidays, birthdays, and anniversaries, or send someone a meaningful thank you, get well wish, congratulations or sympathy note. You can personalize the card(s), or choose our standard message. 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.
