A gift of cash can be in the form of personal check, credit card, cash, or cashier's
check. Plus, if you would like to make your contribution using an automatic payment
system (ACH), the foundation office can assist you in setting up that program. This automatic
payment system gives you the opportunity to spread your annual contribution over twelve
months with automatic monthly transfers from your bank directly to the AHC Foundation.
Many times employers will match your charitable gift to your nonprofit of choice through
their charitable gift program. Remember to ask your employer if he/she has a "matching
charitable gift" program.
