Ways to Give

Donating By Check:

Cash donations may be made via check to “Los Alamos Community Foundation” and mailed to:

Los Alamos Community Foundation
P.O. Box 1225
Los Alamos, NM 87544

If donating to a fund, please remember to write the fund name in the check memo line.

Donating by Credit Card:

You may also contribute online using a credit card. Please click here to go to our online donation page, where you can make undesignated donations or contribute to one of our funds.

Please note that credit card transactions carry a fee. This fee will be deducted from the gift amount and the net proceeds will be added to the fund. Your tax deduction will be the gross amount of the gift.

IRA Distributions:

For some, there are tax-advantaged ways to donate through your IRA. Please see this page for more information.

Non-cash Donations:

There are many benefits to donating securities rather than cash. Los Alamos Community Foundation accepts donation of marketable securities. Please click here for information. For other non-cash donations, please contact us.

We recommend initiating transfer of stocks, bonds or contributions via money wire by December 24 to ensure the contribution will be eligible for a current-year tax deduction.
