Giving to the Medical Toxicology Foundation is easy and there are many ways to make a gift that will impact medical toxicology now and into the future.  Find one that works for you and make your gift today!

Cash/Check/Card – gifts of any amount can be made via the Donate page on the MTF website

Donor-Advised Funds (DAF) – the MTF is able to accept gifts from your donor-advised fund.  Just notify the fund that you would like to designate a gift to the Medical Toxicology Foundation and they will take it from there.

Qualified Charitable Distributions (QCD) – these gifts are from your IRA and are most beneficial for those who must take a required minimum distribution (RMD).  Notify your IRA holder to make that distribution to the Medical Toxicology Foundation and it becomes a tax-free distribution and tax-deductible contribution.

Gift of Stock – gifts of appreciated stock or mutual funds can provide great tax benefits. Talk to
your broker or tax advisor.

Endowment Gifts – these gifts ensure the sustainability of the Foundation while providing funds to support current work!

Tribute - these gifts offer a wonderful way to honor or celebrate a mentor or other special person in your career or life while moving forward the mission of the Foundation. 

Memorial - make a gift in memory of a loved one while at the same time helping to sustain toxicology education and research.  

  • For the two above, we will process your gift with an acknowledgment and your honoree will also receive a letter letting them know that you have made a gift in their name. We do not disclose the gift amount.

Matching Gifts – Does your employer have a matching gift program?  Many do!  Check with your human resources or payroll department about the process.  The IMPACT of your gift is doubled at no additional cost to you.

Workplace Giving – does your company conduct a workplace giving drive? If they do, consider designating the Medical Toxicology Foundation for your employee-directed contributions. Contact your Human Resources or Payroll Department today and make that designation.

Planned Gifts – Planned gifts can be as simple as a bequest in your estate plan, a beneficiary designation for a life insurance policy, or as complicated as a charitable remainder trust.  Talk to your financial team – accountant, lawyer and financial planner to determine the best option for you!
