Individual Giving

Making an individual gift to the American Lung Association is a great way to give the "gift of life and breath" to millions living with lung disease. It may also provide you with certain tax advantages. Donate on-line now or download our donation form and mail it today.

Individual financial support of the American Lung Association can come through a variety of methods, such as direct gifts of money or assets; the donation of cars and other motor vehicles; creative ways, such as buying and selling on eBay, participating in a scheduled fundraising event; holding your own fundraiser as a third party event or purchasing the Golf Tour Book. There are also many volunteer opportunities.

Gifts of Cash
There is no easier way to give than by sending a check to your local American Lung Association office; calling 800-231-5864 to donate using your credit card; or by donating online. If you itemize your tax deductions, gifts may be fully deductable.
Life Insurance Policies
Naming a charitable organization as policy owner and beneficiary of a new or existing life insurance policy also rewards you—in the form of an income tax deduction for either the total of the premiums paid or the fair market value, whichever is less.
Charitable Gift Annuities
Provides fixed, guaranteed payments for life to you, immediate tax deductions, and long-term support of the fight against lung disease.
Gifts of Stocks, Bonds or Real Estate
Minimize your capital gains tax by making a donation of appreciated securities or property.
Name the American Lung Association of the Midland States in your will and leave a lasting legacy.
