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. 

Contact Lisa Lanzkowsky and Natalie Krauser for more information.

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  Based on earnings and growth of the Fund, a conservative percentage of the fund is withdrawn each year to support programs so the fund will last in perpetuity.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 membership, either online or by mail, you support communities including MAC and WIC, programs to engage student members or provide funding where the need is greatest (Annual Fund).
