Donate In Memory
Would you like to remember a loved one or friend in a special way? Donating to a special cause can be a wonderful way to commemorate a person’s life.
Some people prefer to arrange for donations to their favorite charity instead of flowers at the funeral or memorial service.
You can remember someone close to you by making a donation in their memory to Asante Africa Foundation.
This is a valuable and positive way to remember a loved one, while helping vulnerable people in the developing world live a more productive and fulfilling life.
In memory donations can be arranged through funeral directors, sent directly to Asante Africa Foundation or you may choose to set up an online donation capability in honor of your loved one.
We would be happy to send you information for your friends or family. All donations are gratefully received and acknowledged.
Gifts of Stock
Making a gift of appreciated stock or mutual funds can provide many tax advantages including avoiding federal and state tax on capital gains and receiving an income tax deduction for the full market value of your gift.
A stock gift can be an ideal way to make a larger gift at a lower original cost to you, stretching your donation further and helping more children in East Africa gain access to education.

Bequests are a wonderful way to make an impact on the work of Asante Africa Foundation and leave a meaningful legacy. A gift through your will or living trust is fully deductible from your estate and can significantly reduce taxes on the balance of your estate.
Opting to make a residuary bequest is particularly valuable to us, as it generally increases in value over time, as opposed to an exact figure (specific bequest), which usually erodes over time due to inflation.
No matter how you choose to give, please ask a legal professional to check your Will to ensure it is valid and give you peace of mind.
You can also leave a legacy by naming Asante Africa Foundation, Inc., as the beneficiary of your life insurance, living trust or qualified retirement plan (such as IRAs, qualified pensions, tax deferred annuities and some TIAA CREF plans).
We are very thankful for your support and would appreciate knowing if you include Asante Africa Foundation, Inc., in your estate plans so that we may acknowledge your commitment.
If you choose to name Asante Africa Foundation in your will or trust, the suggested language is:
I give and bequeath to Asante Africa Foundation, Inc., 1334 Carlton Place, Livermore, CA 94550, a California based not-for-profit organization, the sum of $____ (or ___ percent of my residuary estate) for such purposes as the Board of Directors of Asante Africa Foundation, Inc., shall determine to be in the best interest of the organization.
