How to Donate
Cash, check or credit
Giving by cash, check, or credit is easy and fast. You can give online or download, print, and fill out the donation form and return it to the AMS Development Office. Please make checks payable to the “American Mathematical Society.”
Gifts of securities (stocks, bonds, and most mutual fund shares) can provide favorable tax advantages to you. Giving long-term appreciated property provides a double benefit: you generally get a charitable deduction for the full fair-market value of the property, plus you avoid any potential capital-gain tax. Contact Robin Marek at the AMS Development Office to learn more about making a gift of securities.
The AMS considers gifts of real property on a case-by-case basis in accordance with its gift policies. Such donations may include residences, vacation homes, business or commercial property (developed or undeveloped). If you are interested in donating real estate, contact the AMS AMS Development Office for information.
Other assets that can be gifted include gifts of tangible personal property, and royalties and distribution rights. If you have an idea or question regarding an asset that you wish to donate to the Society, you are encouraged to discuss it with our staff.

Beloved family members, friends, and colleagues can be remembered with a tribute gift during their lifetime (i.e., in honor of) or when their life has ended (i.e., in memory of). Such gifts are an expression of respect and goodwill that greatly benefit the mathematics community. Each year, the AMS recognizes its tribute donors and the people they have remembered in two publications: the Annual Report and Notices.
To honor someone with a tribute gift, you may donate online or download, print, and fill out the donation form and return it to the AMS Development Office.
