Donate - Your money, time, volunteer....... a raffle basket, an hors d' oeuvre or a food item for the post concert reception. Many people get their favorite restaurant involved with donations or paid advertising. This is some post-concert reception... Martinis from MIX, raw bar items from Lusty Lobster, hors d' oeuvres from Carmelina's Caterers, Julia & Gregg's BBQ chicken wings, to-die-for desserts from Flaky Tart... are some typical participants.
Rock a Baby - The ARFC has a training and screening program for anyone that can help at one of their St. Claire's Homes. This is the place to make a real difference.

Cash Donations - You can support the work of the AIDS Resource Foundation for Children by sending a check or money order payable to the AIDS Resource Foundation for Children to the ARFC Development Department, 77 Academy Street, Newark, NJ 07102. They are a registered 501c-3 non-profit and your donation will be tax deductible.
Matching Gifts - Many companies encourage philanthropic interest among their employees by offering a matching gift program. If your company offers a matching gift program this is an easy and effective way to double or even triple your contribution to the ARFC.
Workplace Gifts - The convenience of donating at the workplace has made payroll deduction programs a popular alternative for the contributor. ARFC participates in the Combined Federal Campaign (#6001) and other workplace campaigns. Check with your Human Resources office to see if ARFC is a designated charity in your workplace contribution campaign.
Gifts of Stock - Donating an appreciated asset to ARFC may allow you to avoid a significant portion of your tax liability while still receiving a charitable contribution deduction. For example, if you donate a long-term appreciated asset such as stock to ARFC, you are generally entitled to an income tax deduction for the current fair market value of that asset, no matter what your original cost. Additionally, all capital gains tax that were due would be avoided. However, to take a deduction for gifts of securities at their current value, you must have owned them for one year and a day.
