A special tribute: Memorial and honorary gifts


Did you know you can honor a family member, friend, or colleague through a gift to the AGA Research Foundation? Your gift will honor a loved one and support the AGA Research Awards Program, while giving you a tax benefit.

  • Giving now or later. Any charitable gift can be made in honor or memory of someone.
  • A gift today. An outright gift will help fund the AGA Research Awards Program. Your gift will assist in furthering basic digestive disease research, which can ultimately advance research into all digestive diseases. The financial benefits include an income tax deduction and possible elimination of capital gains tax.
  • A gift through your will or living trust. You can include a bequest in your will or living trust stating that a specific asset, certain dollar amount, or more commonly a percentage of your estate will pass to the AGA Research Foundation at your death in honor of your loved one.
  • Named opportunities. Individuals interested in receiving name recognition for a listed AGA Institute program can do so by contributing a new, unrestricted gift to the AGA Research Foundation. The gift can be payable over five years. Endowed opportunities are also available.
