Other Ways To Give

Employee Giving and Corporate Match Programs

Does your company offer a matching gift program? If so, your employer may double or even triple every dollar you give to AFC! Contact your company’s human resource department for information regarding its program.

You can support AFC at work by taking advantage of your company’s workplace giving programs, often as simple as a payroll deduction. For more information contact your human resource department to enroll in an employee payroll deduction program. AFC’s tax ID number is 36-3412054.

You can also consider joining or starting an AIDS Run & Walk Chicago team at work! It is the perfect opportunity to build stronger relationships with your business associates while supporting the mission of the AIDS Foundation of Chicago; plus, it is a great time!

In-kind gifts

AFC is grateful for needed in-kind contributions and services. These can include donated printing, professional services, items for special event auctions, or some other unique contribution you or your business has to offer. Depending on the size of the gift, we will acknowledge your in-kind contribution or service in our publications and/or at our special events. You will receive an acknowledgement thanking you for your donation, in keeping with IRS regulations. In general, AFC will not accept gifts of used cars for resale.  If you would like to donate goods or services, please contact Edward Wagner, Chief Officer of External Relations, at 312-334-0922.

By choosing an IIC Real Estate Member for your real estate transaction, you can support the nonprofit organizations (NGOs) that are important to you. Click here to learn more and find an agent.

Memorial/tribute gifts

Through AFC, you have the opportunity to honor a special person or make a memorial donation and help those impacted by HIV/AIDS in Illinois and beyond. With your donation we will mail a personalized card and message to the person or family of the person in whose name the donation was made. You can make a memorial or tribute gift through our online donation form.

Are you planning a wedding or special occasion where donors can give as a tribute or memorial gift? Please contact Hanna Smith, Director of Individual Giving, at 312-784-9072 or hsmith@aidschicago.org and we can set up a customized option for your activity.
