Matching Gifts

Many corporations encourage philanthropic contributions by matching or multiplying their employees' gifts to charitable organizations. Many corporations also offer matching gifts for volunteer hours donated. When you make a gift, please inquire to see if your employer matches such contributions to AIChE.

Stock Gifts

A gift of stock is a great way to help support AIChE, and it may allow you to realize tax benefits while receiving a charitable contribution deduction.

Endowment Gifts

Endowment gifts make a significant impact because they offer financial stability and ensure long-term funding to support and maintain AIChE priorities and programs.

A bequest or gift to the Endowment Fund is money that is invested on a permanent basis and not spent directly.  Based on earnings and growth of the Fund, a conservative percentage of the fund is withdrawn each year to support programs so the fund will last in perpetuity. Donors can also specify spending instructions for designated funds.

Dues Renewal Gifts

AIChE members can make charitable contributions through their annual AIChE dues renewal. As a member, when you renew your bill, either online or by paper, you can designate a gift to a particular AIChE program or area by selecting the appropriate check off box. Each year, one of the five funds is designated toward a special program or campaign.

Every gift made via the AIChE dues renewal directly impact the programs designed to keep AIChE at the forefront of the chemical engineering profession. The AIChE Foundation gratefully acknowledges the thousands of members who support AIChE via their dues renewal each year.
