People are living longer. According to the 2015 US Census on aging, 8.5% of the total world population is made up of individuals aged 65 and older – the highest percentage to date. 

By making a gift to support the Institute on Aging, you are helping to make a difference in advancing the research, education, and care for aging-related diseases such as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, and more. Key initiatives supported by your gift include the IOA Pilot Program, Visiting Scholars Series, and the Fellows Program.

  • Tribute Gifts
    Honor someone who has impacted your life by making a gift in his or her name. A letter notifying your loved one or their family will be sent for each tribute gift.
  • Matching Gifts
    Matching gifts offered through your company can double and, in some cases, even triple your gift. Enclose your company's matching fit form with your gift. Your company's personnel office will be able to provide more information about their matching gift program.
  • Gifts of Securities
    Gifts of stocks or appreciated securities are often a wise choice because donors pay no capital gains tax while deducting the full value of the gift.
  • Planned Gifts
    A planned gift to IOA, as a part of your financial and estate planning, provides additional tax and income benefits to you and your family. Planned or deferred gifts include, bequests, charitable gift annuities, retirement asset designations, charitable remained trusts and other tax-savvy options.
  • Naming Opportunities
    With a gift of $25,000 or more (payable over multiple years), you can create a fund named in your or that of a loved one. Named funds enable you to direct resources to specific research initiatives or jumpstart novel programs.
