Ways to Give

Thanks to donors like you, the American Psychological Foundation is able to support a wide range of innovative research, scholarships and projects for students and early career psychologists, working to make a difference in people’s lives.

APF invites you to join the hundreds of psychologists worldwide who support our works.

Stock Gifts

Contributing long-term appreciated securities can help you achieve your philanthropic goals and often can provide special tax savings. In addition to receiving a tax deduction for the gift, the current value of the securities can be deducted regardless of how much they have appreciated, and there is no capital gains tax on the profit.

Gifts of Royalties

Many psychologists find donating royalties from books, films, psychological tests and other published materials to APF a quick and easy way to give back.

Matching Gifts

Many employers have matching gift programs that allow your charitable contribution to be matched with a contribution from the organization.

Leave a Legacy

Planned giving is an excellent way to allow you to make larger contributions than are often possible through outright gifts. By making a planned gift to APF, you can make a commitment for the future and often receive cost-savings, including tax benefits, today.
