100 Reasons to Give BuckslipMany of our members received a “100 Reasons to Give” insert with their renewal notice. You can print this one to remind them to participate online or with this form through the mail. We want to share the pride of the profession and share their responses in our publications! 

Another way Liaisons fundraise is through soliciting Auction items for the auction at Annual Session/CLL in June. For more information on what types of items the ADHA Institute looks for or for the procedure to follow when donating auction items please visit the Auction Donation page.

A Pledge is a large gift generally spread out across multiple payments and, depending on the size of the gift, over one or many years. For example, a donor may want to donate $1000 over a 2 year period with payments being made monthly, quarterly, or bi-annually. Gifts can always be made to a specific fund—such as a named scholarship, like the Esther Wilkins Scholarship, or gifts can be made more generally to be applied to areas of greatest need, or all research or scholarship funds generally. Pledges should be submitted using the Pledge Form available for download here.

Donations from Constituent/Components and donations from Individuals are now recorded and submitted using one form. This form also allows you to indicate if individuals purchased raffle tickets and how many. The new donation form was designed to streamline submitting your Individual and Constituent/Component donations. Please contact if you have any questions regarding the new format. The Donation Form is available here.
