Ways to Give

Thank you for considering a gift to the IWMF. As a volunteer organization with a very small staff, we depend on gifts to provide the services to support those afflicted by WM and to fund the research that will lead to better treatments and a cure for this rare, orphan disease. Gifts made to the IWMF support education and support services for WM patients and caregivers around the world as well as research specific to finding more effective treatments for WM and, ultimately, a cure.

You can donate online, by mail, or by calling 941-927-4963.

Consider a number of Gift Options including information on what to give and how to give both today as well as in the future.

You can make a pledge to the Imagine a Cure Campaign.

You may want to donate your appreciated stocks to advance our mission, while saving on taxes.

Consider the possibility of establishing a Named Gift Fund or becoming a Research Partner. Research Partners may want to consider supporting a specific research project.

You may want to consider making a planned gift to work towards a world without WM (Waldenstrom’s macroglobulinemia) for years to come. We’ve partnered with FreeWill: a free online tool that guides you through the process of making or updating your will, as well as other estate planning documents and including a gift to the IWMF. Including a planned gift to the IWMF also enables you to join the Ben Rude Heritage Society.

Have you included a gift to the IWMF in your estate plan? If so, please fill out this form to let us know so we could say thank you for funding the research that will lead to better treatments in your legacy.

If you’re 70.5 or older and have a traditional IRA, you may want to use this secure online tool to donate directly from your retirement account while reducing your taxable income and fulfill your Required Minimum Distribution (RMD) if you must take one.

You may make a Tribute Gift in honor of someone, or a Memorial Gift in memory of someone.

You can double your donation to the IWMF! Many employers sponsor matching gift programs to match charitable contributions made by their employees. Gifts from retirees and spouses may also qualify for a match. Click here (link is external) to access matching gift forms from your employer.
