Set Up Automated Monthly Gifts

Become a member of AU's Madison Society monthly giving program by setting up automated credit card gifts. Your monthly support will enable us to make plans with confidence, knowing we can count on your regular and steadfast support. If you don't want to donate online, please email us for a form that you can print, complete and mail to us to set up an automatic withdrawal from your bank account.)

Become a Guardian of Freedom

Your generous donation of $1,000 or more will qualify you as an AU Guardian of Freedom, one of a select group of colleagues who have joined together with a common purpose - to defend America's legacy of religious freedom.

Become a Patriot for Freedom

With your annual contribution of $500 or more, you will qualify for AU's special mid-level giving program and will provide critical support for the church-state wall.

Give a Gift Subscription of Church & State Magazine

Giving someone a gift subscription to Church & State magazine is a great way to help AU financially and share our work with others.

Donate in Memory or in Honor of Someone

Make a tribute donation to Americans United to honor a special person or event. You can direct us to notify someone about your contribution, or ask that your gift remain anonymous.

Give Stock

Because incoming stock transfers do not contain donor information, it is critical that you notify AU when considering or making a donation of stock. Please email Rebecca Davis-Nord, AU's Asst. Development Director, for stock transfer instructions and to let us know about your gift so that we may track it and thank you in a timely manner.

Make a Deferred or Planned Gift

A planned gift is any gift other than an outright gift of cash, with a financial benefit both to Americans United and to you. Examples include a bequest, a charitable remainder trust, a charitable gift annuity and a beneficiary designation of an insurance policy or IRA. We can provide information and guidance on any aspect of planned giving by email, telephone or through a personal visit.

Use Employer Matching

If your employer sponsors a corporate matching gifts program, your contribution to AU may be eligible to be doubled or tripled. Find out more from your HR or personnel department or contact AU's Development Department by email for more information. If you have a form from your employer, complete your portion and mail it to AU Development Department (address at the bottom of this page) along with or after making your contribution, and we'll take care of the rest.

To donate to AU by mail, send a check made out to Americans United - or your credit card number with expiration date and security code, and the amount of your gift - to the address at the bottom of this page.

To donate to AU by phone via credit card, call (202) 466-3234 ext. 209.

Americans United is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, and donations beyond the $18.00 value of a subscription to Church & State magazine and/or the $12.00 value of an optional premium are deductible to the full extent of the law.
