Ways to Give
You can support physical therapy research through the various options listed below:
SPECIAL GIFT OPPORTUNITIES
As the end of the year approaches we would like to highlight two unique ways to support the Foundation that will also benefit your pocketbook: gifts of stock and IRA rollovers.
If you have been fortunate to benefit from a stock purchase that has gone up in value, a great way to avoid paying capital gains tax is to donate and transfer shares to the Foundation. The Foundation would then sell the shares and apply the proceeds to any fund or program of your choosing. Click here for stock transfer instructions.
For those age 70-1/2 and older, you can make a gift to the Foundation to meet your annual distribution requirement up to $100,000. By making an IRA charitable rollover gift, you are able to avoid taxes on the IRA distribution while also making a charitable gift to the Foundation. Click here to facilitate an IRA rollover transfer with your IRA custodian or visit IRA Rollover to learn more.

Many corporations have matching gift programs and will match your donation to the Foundation. Check with your employer to see if they have a matching program in place.
COMBINED FEDERAL CAMPAIGN
The Foundation for Physical Therapy participates in the largest workplace charity campaign – the Combined Federal Campaign (CFC). Through the CFC government workers can support our work through payroll deductions. If you are a federal government or military employee, and would like to support the Foundation through the CFC, please donate to the Foundation on your pledge card during the campaign.
The Foundation is a 501(c) (3) charitable organization. Your contribution is tax deductible to the full extent allowed by law. Tax ID number: 13-6161225.
