Tribute & Memorial Giving

Tribute and memorial donations can be made in honor or in remembrance of a special occasion, or in lieu of flowers allowing your family and friends to make donations directly to benefit CHM research, education and support services. The Choroideremia Research Foundation will issue a letter of thanks to all donors which will serve as a tax-deductible receipt. CRF can also provide you with a list of donors for you to acknowledge personally if desired.

Matching Gifts

Many employers sponsor matching gift programs and will match charitable contributions made by their employees. To find out if your company has a matching gift policy, please ask your human resources department, or you may review a partial list of companies that offer matching gifts here: Matching Gift Companies (PDF)

If your company is eligible, request a matching gift form from your employer, and send it completed and signed with your gift. CRF will do the rest. The impact of your gift may be doubled or possibly tripled! Some companies also match gifts made by retirees and/or spouses.

Estate Giving / Gifts of Stock

Remembering the Choroideremia Research Foundation in your estate or with a planned gift will strengthen research efforts to find treatments and a cure so that future generations may never experience vision loss caused by CHM. The information below provides several examples of planned gifts but should not be taken as financial advice; please consult your personal financial advisor for additional information.

Bequests

A bequest is a gift from your estate or will—a transfer of cash, securities, or other property made through your estate plans. You can make a bequest to the Choroideremia Research Foundation by including language in your will or living trust leaving a portion of your estate to CRF. Bequests can be made for a specific amount, for a percentage of your estate, or for all or a portion of what is left after you have made bequests to your family. To make a gift from your estate, you must sign a new will or living trust instrument, add a codicil to your present will, or make an amendment to your present trust instrument.

Life Insurance

You can also designate CRF as a beneficiary of a retirement plan or life insurance policy. To do so, contact the retirement plan administrator or life insurance company and complete the appropriate beneficiary designation form.

Stocks

Your gift can be electronically transferred to the Choroideremia Research Foundation.

IRA Charitable Contribution

An IRA Charitable Contribution allows you to meet your Required Minimum Distribution (RMD) requirements without adding to your taxable income. This benefits you while supporting the important work of the Choroideremia Research Foundation.
