Discover Ways to Give & Save

Gifts to AARP Foundation can take multiple forms and can help you address your personal financial goals and dreams. Do you want to make a significant gift during your lifetime, or would a gift as part of your estate work better? Do you have a particular asset that you are thinking of donating? Do you want to increase your retirement income, or is your primary goal estate preservation? Are you carrying surplus life insurance or a large balance in your retirement plan?


Here are some places to start as you consider ways to support you, your loved ones and AARP Foundation all at the same time:
