You can increase your gift if your employer has a Matching Gift program. Thousands of companies have programs that will double, or even triple, individual tax-deductible contributions made by their employees. Check with your personnel office to find out about your company’s Matching Gift Program. They will give you a matching gift application to fill out and mail to us. We’ll take it from there. Send your matching gift application to: Academy of Science of St. Louis, 5050 Oakland Avenue, St. Louis, Missouri 63110.

Gifts of Stock:
A gift of securities provides an opportunity for tax savings while generously supporting the Academy. A gift of stock owned for more than one year entitles you to a charitable deduction for the full market value at the time the gift is made. If the stock has appreciated, you also avoid a capital gains tax on the appreciation in value. If you would like to discuss a securities gift to the Academy, please call (314) 533-8083.
