Workplace Giving Campaigns: These are annual, employer-sponsored programs that offer employees the opportunity to make a charitable contribution through payroll deduction. Many campaigns allow their employees to “write-in” or nominate a U.S. based, 501.C3 charity for inclusion in their annual campaign, which in turn can easily generate new donors for AAI.

Become a Corporate Partner or Sponsor

AAI can create tailored corporate partnership programs that are designed to meet specific corporate responsibility objectives in the United States or in Africa. Corporate sponsorship programs may include: event sponsorships; cause-related marketing initiatives; and programmatic partnerships.

Make a Gift of Securities

Gifts of appreciated stock or mutual funds are a great way to support AAI. The donor will receive an income tax deduction for the full fair market value of securities, which the donor has owned more than one year and subject to the usual limitation. Capital gains tax will be applied on these assets.
