Ways to Give

In addition to attending special events, making a major gift, or becoming a monthly donor, there are other ways to give to the Charcot-Marie-Tooth Association. You can help support our important work by making a gift today. For further information, please email Jeana Sweeney, Chief Engagement and Gift Officer, at jeana@cmtausa.org.

IRA Donation


With this gift, you can:

  • Avoid paying tax on your gift and all, or part, of your minimum distribution requirement
  • Enjoy a quick and easy estate tax reduction.
  • Join the association in your shared vision to find a permanent, one-time cure for CMT.
  • Find out how to give through your IRA.

    Stock or Other Securities

    Gift of Stock

    Stocks, bonds and other securities may be donated to the Charcot-Marie-Tooth Association. Donors often choose to give long-term appreciated stock because they may deduct the fair market value amount and receive the benefit of avoiding capital gains tax on the sale of the security.
