Memorial or tribute gift
When you make a memorial or tribute gift to the American Lung Association and honor someone special in your life, you’re expressing your love, admiration and gratitude in a very meaningful way. Your gift will honor your loved one, create a lasting tribute and help save lives from lung disease.
Gifts of real estate
You can donate appreciated real estate, such as a home, vacation property, undeveloped land, farmland, ranch or commercial property. This is an easy and effective way to reduce your taxes, protect your assets and fight lung disease. What’s more, you can leave this generous gift while you continue to use the property throughout your lifetime, and you may receive a tax deduction for your gift.
Gifts of securities
You can use stocks, bonds and mutual funds that have appreciated in value to fight lung disease with the American Lung Association. You may receive a charitable income tax deduction for the full market value of the stock (up to a maximum of 30 percent of your adjusted gross income) and avoid paying the capital gains tax on any increase in the value of the stock.

Gifts of property
You can give gifts of property, including artwork, jewelry or other assets. Gifts like these are tax deductible in the same way as gifts of cash.
Gifts of cash
A donation of cash is the most direct way to support the American Lung Association. You benefit from a charitable tax credit while you push for healthy air and healthy lungs. You can be recognized as a sustaining donor by setting up a recurring gift. You can make your gift online with our secure online donation form or by sending a check or money order by mail to:
