Honoraria and Speaker Fees
If you have an upcoming speaking engagement, consider donating your honorarium to the Foundation to support future initiatives. Be sure to identify to your host that you would like your honorarium to go to the AUGS Foundation. Asking your host to make a donation to the AUGS Foundation in your honor supports the Foundation and furthers awareness of the Foundation and its important work.
Book royalties in full or in part can be donated to the Foundation. This is a great way to support the Foundation’s work while promoting your book. Make a gift once you have received your royalties or make arrangements through your publisher to have a donation sent directly to the Foundation.
Be sure to contact the AUGS Foundation at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are making a donation directly through your publisher as well as ask your publisher to include your name with the payment. We want to be sure to thank you for your generous donation. If we cannot determine who a donation of book royalties is from, we will list it as anonymous. If you wish to make a gift equal to your royalty payment, tell your publisher so that your charitable support can be mentioned in the marketing of your book.
Stocks and Securities
Donating appreciated stocks or securities directly to the AUGS Foundation is an easy way to make a gift. You can receive a tax deduction and avoid capital gains taxes, too. When transferring stocks or securities directly to the AUGS Foundation, have your broker or financial advisor contact the Foundation first at email@example.com or (301) 273-0570.
You can leave a lasting impact on the field of female pelvic medicine and reconstructive surgery through a will, lead trust or gift of insurance. Your gift will benefit the Foundation for years to come, and there may be tax advantages for you. You can create a planned gift through real estate, bequests, charitable remainder trusts and other gifts that provide both you and the AUGS Foundation with income.
