There are many easy ways to give to The LAM Foundation other than direct cash donations. Below are some of the ways where a little action can make a big difference!
Corporate Gift Matching is the best way to increase the impact of your gift to The LAM Foundation. Many companies have matching gift programs that double, or even triple, your contribution. Check with your Human Resources department for information on how to double your donation to The LAM Foundation.

Francis X. McCormack Career Development Award Fundplus
As part of Dr. McCormack's passion for leading, inspiring, and expanding promising LAM research, he has consistently encouraged young scientists and clinicians to study LAM. To acknowledge his investment in the future of LAM science, we named an annual LAM research award in his honor: The Francis X. McCormack Career Development Award.

Many companies encourage their employees to give to charities before taxes. Check with your HR department to set up a donation to The LAM Foundation through your payroll.
Your company’s employee giving might be run through your local United Way Campaign. The LAM Foundation may not be listed as a designated organization for your United Way, but you can write in The LAM Foundation on the “donor designated” portion of your donation form. Ask your HR representative or call your local United Way office for more information.

Donating in-kind gifts is another great way to support The LAM Foundation. An in-kind gift can help generate revenue streams through silent auctions, raffles, and services provided. You can also help the Foundation spare expenses by donating office equipment that may be needed, such as printers, laptops, etc. We can also use donated services, like printing for envelopes and brochures.
Consider donating items to a future silent auction such as gift certificates, services, jewelry, and even timeshares or vacation homes.
