Ways to Donate

  • Donations by Check

Donations can be made with a check made payable to AFAF. The check, along with your return name and address, should be forwarded to:
American Friends of our Armed Forces
232 Wild Horse Drive
Palm Desert, CA 92211.

  • Donations by Credit Card

Donations can be made using an approved credit card (MasterCard and Visa) by calling 760-340-0392 where your credit card information will be taken and your account will be charged for your donation.

  • Stock Donations

You can make charitable donations through the gift of corporate stocks. This is of particular advantage to the donor if they have owned the stock for at least 12 months and the stock has appreciated in value during their time of ownership.

Under these conditions the Internal Revenue Service allows you to deduct the full value of the donated stock without paying a tax on the capital gains achieved during your ownership.

To make arrangements for a transfer of corporate stock, please contact us. We will help you with arrangements for the transfer. You should always check with your financial advisor before making a gift of a stock of securities.
