Consider a End-of-Year Donation

Every 38 seconds, someone dies from cardiovascular disease. In fact, heart and blood vessel diseases are America’s No. 1 killer. And with your help, we’re fighting back – working relentlessly for a world free of these deadly diseases. But as we speak, critical projects that could save countless lives are in desperate need of funding for 2010. Nationally, we need to raise $1.5 million online by December 31 to fund our programs at full strength. Can you help?

Make a tax-deductible gift right now and be a lifeline for someone touched by heart disease or stroke.

Or consider a Gift of Stock. Do you own stocks (or other publicly-traded securities) that have appreciated in value or re-appreciated in value since you purchased them? By donating appreciated securities, you can eliminate all of your potential capital gains taxes on these assets and receive an income tax deduction for up to their full fair market value. That's like receiving two tax deductions!

Simply use our online stock donation tool to make your gift quickly and conveniently in just a few minutes, or go to our website to learn more about the benefits of giving appreciated securities and use our Stock Gift Calculator to see how you can give more stock for the same after-tax cost as giving cash.
