Major Gifts

A Special Invitation to Help Secure the Future of AIA

With its wide range of stimulating lectures, educational outreach programs, international travel opportunities and other enriching activities, the Albuquerque International Association accomplishes as much for the community as organizations two or three times its size. But cost-effective use of limited resources can go only so far. In order to continue these programs and plan for the future, AIA needs a secure financial footing. To accomplish this, the Board of Directors has launched a Major Gift Campaign.

The concept is simple: Those of us who get so much, intellectually, culturally and socially, from the association are joining together to contribute $2,500 or more apiece to create a solid base. These major gifts can be pledged over as many as five years. Thus, $500 a year constitutes a $2,500 gift; $2,000 a year constitutes $10,000. Major gifts help AIA have the resources to plan annual programs and fund operating expenses.

Made through AIA’s umbrella, the Center for International Studies, a 501(c)3 organization, contributions to the Major Gift Campaign are tax deductible for most donors. Major gifts to CFIS/AIA can also be made through the United Way of Central New Mexico. Making your gift in the form of appreciated stock may magnify its impact by allowing you to avoid capital gains tax. We will be happy to supply details.

We invite you to join your fellow members who have already pledged over $90,000 in this significant, exciting opportunity. To make a pledge or for further information, please contact the AIA office at

If you have already made a pledge, you can make your annual gift payment with credit card at the link above (a credit card processing fee will be added). You can also pay by mailing a check to AIA, PO Box 92921, Albuquerque, NM, 87199. The CFIS/AIA IRS tax ID number is 56-2362864.

Endowment Giving

IRA Charitable Rollover

If you are age 70½ or older, you may be interested in the IRA Charitable Rollover – a way to lower your income and taxes from your IRA withdrawals while benefiting the Albuquerque International Association.

Gift of Appreciated Stock or Other Securities

A gift of appreciated stock allows the donor to avoid capital gains tax and take an immediate tax deduction on the value of the gifted stock. Because AIA, like most charities, is not organized to receive gifts of securities directly, the gift must be made to a qualified charitable organization.

Legacy Endowment (Bequests)

To help build the financial security it needs if it is to continue and expand its programs, the Albuquerque International Association is inviting its members to make the Center for International Studies, its 501(c)3 umbrella organization, the beneficiary of bequests from their estates.
