Other Ways to Give
GMHC clients rely on your support
In addition to the donation opportunities provided by our Benefactors, Legacy Circle supporters, and corporate partners, you can support GMHC’s services in many other ways.
Gifts of stock are a smart way to help support our mission while also receiving great tax benefits. If you have held the stock for more than 12 months, you can deduct its full fair-market value at the time of your gift, regardless of how much you paid for it. You also have the chance to reduce or eliminate your
capital gains taxes. If your stock is held in a brokerage account, your broker can transfer your gift electronically. He or she will need the following information:
DTC #: 8862
Account Name: Gay Men’s Health Crisis [GMHC]
Account #: 891-04B44
Brokerage: Merrill Lynch
Because electronic transfers are made without identifying the donor, please alert us in advance about the stock and number of shares you plan to give. You may contact Demetri Sparks, managing director of individual giving at email@example.com or Ph. 212-367-1547.
Secure Matching Gifts
Did you know many companies offer a matching gift program to encourage philanthropy among their employees? Gifts from employees’ spouses, as well as retirees, may also qualify.
Contributions of any amount help GMHC end the AIDS epidemic and uplift the lives of all affected.
You can use the form below to see if your employer offers a matching gift program. By simply completing your company’s matching gift form, you may be able to double, or even triple, the impact of your gift to GMHC!
For more information, contact Jason Cianciotto, managing director of institutional development, firstname.lastname@example.org or Ph. 520-909-3104.
Designate GMHC for Gifts through Donor-Advised Funds
A donor-advised fund is like a charitable investment account, for the sole purpose of supporting charitable organizations you care about – like GMHC. When you contribute cash, securities or other assets to a donor-advised fund at a public charity, you are generally eligible to take an immediate tax deduction. Then, those funds can be invested for tax-free growth and you can recommend grants for distribution to virtually any IRS-qualified public charity. For any questions related to executing a DAF gift to GMHC, please contact Demetri Sparks at email@example.com or 212.367.1547.
Attend an Event
GMHC holds fundraising events throughout the year to raise critical funds for our services. They include the largest and long-running HIV/AIDS fundraiser – AIDS Walk New York — that is organized by our event partner MZA. For more information about our events, visit our event page or contact Liz Gilchrist, managing director of events and sponsorships, at firstname.lastname@example.org or Ph. 917-607-9295.

Donate on AmazonSmile
Go to AmazonSmile and search for “Gay Men’s Health Crisis Inc.” Select our organization, then shop as you normally would. As long as you start your Amazon shopping at smile.amazon.com, Amazon will donate 0.5 percent of the price of your eligible purchases to GMHC.
Many organizations or individuals choose to contribute to GMHC through in-kind support. Currently, GMHC is unable to accept any in-kind goods other than professional attire for our Workforce Development program on a case-by-case basis. Additionally, GMHC is not able to pick up items; they must be dropped off at the agency, once an in-kind donation is approved. For more information, you may contact Demetri Sparks, managing director of individual giving, DemetriS@gmhc.org or Ph. 212-367-1547.
