If you have any questions please call 919-861-5574 x7169 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. ASEF’s is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization and the tax identification number is 43-1972597. All gifts are tax deductible to the fullest extent of United States law.
Donation of Honoraria
You can donate honoraria from both ASE- and non-ASE projects.
Are you interested in donating your honoraria from a project you are completing with the ASE? You can donate your ASE honoraria and select one of the eight initiatives for the funds to be allocated. Once all the paperwork is processed, you will receive a receipt by email.
Are you interested in donating honoraria from outside speaking engagements? The company engaging the speaker will coordinate the transfer of funds directly with ASEF. ASEF will fill out all of the forms, and the donation is processed directly to ASEF. You will receive credit for the donation and a receipt will be emailed to you.
Monthly Sustaining Contributor
An easy way to give to the Foundation is through monthly automatic payments, charged to your credit card each month on the date you choose. Your annual contribution total can be divided into payments for any amount, and can be started or stopped at any time. If you would like to join this dedicated group and become a Sustainer, simply email email@example.com to get started.
A pledge can be made to a designated initiative of the Foundation for any amount. Pledges can be annual or multi-year in commitment, but have a hard start and stop date. A pledge fulfillment schedule will be arranged with you, and a reminder will be sent when the pledge nears completion.
Memorial and Honorary Gifts
Gifts of any type may be made in honor of, or in memory of, a specific individual. This is a special way to honor the memory of someone, or to recognize the accomplishments of a colleague, professor, or mentor. The ASEF will send a notification to the honoree regarding gifts made in this way.
Stocks and Securities
Gifts of appreciated securities are a great way to transmit assets to ASEF as charitable contributions. Regardless of the method of transferring stock, as per IRS regulations the value of the stock gift is calculated on the date the transfer is received by the ASE Foundation or its broker.
A charitable bequest is the most popular type of planned gift and offers you the satisfaction of knowing that your gift will benefit the Foundation for years to come. It is a flexible planning tool that can be created or changed with relative ease over your lifetime. With a bequest, which is a gift made at death through a will or trust document, you can provide a specific dollar amount, a specific asset, or a portion of your estate that remains after other gifts are made to family or friends. Bequests can be allocated to a specific initiative or left to the area of greatest need. Bequests are generally made using the advice of a legal advisor or estate planning professional.
Gifts can be made online at any time. You can designate which initiative the donation is allocated towards when you make the donation. Donate Now.

Gifts of cash are available for immediate use by the Foundation and are usually fully tax deductible for donors who itemize their deductions. Checks can also be mailed to the ASE Foundation at 2100 Gateway Centre Boulevard, Suite 310, Morrisville, NC 27560.
