Matching Gift Through Your Organization
You can increase the value of your donation by having your employer match it! Some companies will match or double the amount of your donation, and a spouse's company may also match your gift. To determine if your organization has a gift-matching program, please contact your HR Department.
Donate Through Dues Renewal
You can make a donation when you renew your AIAA membership. Simply choose the option to donate at the bottom of the renewal application..
Creating a legacy gift is easy. Leave a bequest of cash or stock to the AIAA Foundation in your will, name the AIAA Foundation as a beneficiary of your 401(k) or life insurance, or contact your estate planner to set up a gift annuity or gift of real estate.
Gifts of any amount may be made in honor of a special person. Memorial Fund gifts may support any of our Endowment Funds, where contributions are placed where the need is greatest.
Endow a Fund
A special perpetual honor, gifts of $100,000 or more may be named for an individual, family or corporation. This is an outstanding opportunity for international recognition and tribute. A named gift will be placed in the endowment fund of your choice, or a special program may be established which meets the mutual interests of the donor, the AIAA Foundation and our community.
