The Many Ways to Give
The Many Ways to Give
The Moon Society depends on the generous and thoughtful gifts of members, friends, and corporate sponsors to help advance the day when viable civilian settlements will thrive on the Moon.
Below are some creative ways you in which can support the work of The Moon Society. You can pick the way or ways that are best for you.
Honor, celebrate, or memorialize someone
Make a special donation to honor, celebrate, or memorialize a family member, a colleague, or a friend or someone else whom you admire. Your tribute can be in the form of a general purpose donation, or a donation to a specific project of the Society
Gifts in the form of stocks, bonds, or mutual funds appreciated in value can be an easy way for you to generously support the work of the Society and may also be attractive for tax reduction purposes.
If your employer has a matching gift program, you can double the value to the Society of any cash or stock donation
Make a Planned Gift
if you are planning the final distribution of your estate, you can include The Moon Society in your will or living trust with a planned gift or bequest. A gift of specified amounts of cash, securities, life insurance, real estate, IRAs, or other property will provide a welcome and much-needed gift to the Society, and may also enable you to retain current assets and save on estate taxes later.
Your gift is revocable with no loss of control over the asset to be bequeathed. There is no immediate transfer of the asset and therefore it does not disrupt your current lifestyle to any great extent.
Planned gifts are enduring ones. They can enable and endow projects or provide the funds to take advantage of unanticipated opportunities to advance the Society's goals. Your memory and legacy are celebrated with your gift to the future.
