Ways to Give

Thank you for considering a gift to ECS!

“Real generosity to the future lies in giving to the present.”

–Albert Camus

There are many different ways to make your contribution.

When you join or renew membership

You can easily make a gift to ECS through our membership portal. When you go to check out, select the option to donate online.

Online

You can make a donation directly through our website with your credit card.

Via check

Please make your check payable to The Electrochemical Society, note the fund to which you would like to give in the memo line, and mail to:
The Electrochemical Society
65 S. Main Street, Building D
Pennington, NJ 08534-2839

Transfer securities

If you are a U.S. resident, you may transfer stocks, bonds, or mutual funds to ECS as a charitable contribution. You do not have to pay capital gains tax on the transfer, and you may receive an immediate income tax deduction for the current value of the securities. Please contact the ECS Development Office, development@electrochem.org, to learn more.

Planned giving

A planned gift allows you to support ECS while retaining complete control over your assets during your lifetime. Because of careful tax planning and the passage of time, planned gifts often enable you to make a larger contribution than would otherwise be possible. Depending on your country of residence, a planned gift to ECS may also earn a full charitable deduction on estate taxes. Learn more.

Be recognized for your gift

The ECS Giving Societies recognize our most loyal and generous donors, whose model support we hope will encourage the involvement of others who can ensure the long-term sustainability of our Society. Without the donors the work we do to advance our sciences through meetings, publications, and honoring outstanding members of our community would be impossible. Learn more.

CFC payroll deduction

If you are a U.S. federal employee, you may give to ECS through the Combined Federal Campaign (CFC). You may make a one-time gift through CFC or arrange to have a specific donation regularly withheld from your paycheck. ECS is currently registered with the CFC of the National Capital Area (CFCNCA); our charity code is 10087. To learn more about CFC or to set up an account, please visit cfcnca.org.

Donor advised funds

A Donor Advised Fund is a type of giving program that allows you to combine the most favorable tax benefits with the flexibility to easily support ECS. An increasingly popular charitable vehicle, donor advised funds both simplify your charitable giving and facilitate your strategic philanthropic goals.  Fill out the form below and click “Next” to complete your recommendation.



Other gift options

You may choose to make a one-time gift or establish a monthly recurring payment. Whatever your preference, please know that gifts of all sizes are extremely important to our mission to produce and disseminate the most recent scientific discoveries in our field.
