Choose the Gift That's Right for You

  • Leave a gift in your will. This costs you nothing now. Include the American Osteopathic Foundation to receive a specific percentage of your estate. You can also take care of family first and name the AOF as a contingent beneficiary, so that students, physicians, educators, or researchers will benefit after your loved ones.


  • Make a gift directly from your IRA. If you’re age 70 ½ or older, you can save on income tax by making a donation to the AOF directly from your Individual Retirement Account (IRA).


  • Make a gift by beneficiary designation. Name the AOF a beneficiary of any of these types of accounts, and you can help the AOF for years to come:
    • Retirement Accounts
    • Life Insurance Policies
    • Bank or Brokerage Account
    • Certificates of Deposit
    • Donor Advised Funds
    • Common Stock


As with any planned gift, please consult with your attorney and/or tax advisor before making any decision.
