Testimonials

“My wife, Brenna, and I recently married, and Alpha has been an important part of our story and relationship. Together we have participated in and/or helped lead seven Alpha courses so far, and we are looking forward to more. We are passionate about sharing the good news of Jesus with those who do not know him, and we believe that Alpha is the best way to do so! We cannot think of a mission worthier of our time, talent, and treasure.”

Jason Samikkannu

“We support Alpha because we truly believe we have a responsibility to share the love of Jesus, not only locally, but throughout the world. Alpha is a wonderful ministry that spreads the gospel in a personal, welcoming manner and has no boundaries. It’s an honor to share some of the blessings we have received with others to see them come to the Lord, grow, and have a personal relationship with Jesus.

Neville Fernandes

“In our experience as donors, hosts, and facilitators of Alpha courses, Alpha is uniquely effective at engaging both serious skeptics and those who have been deeply wounded by the Church. Every time we see the fruit of an Alpha course, we look at each other and ask why we do anything else with our time and financial resources; absolutely nothing compares to watching individuals move from death to life before your eyes.”

Name Alpha USA in your Will

If you are writing your will for the first time, revising your existing plans, or own investment or retirement accounts or life insurance policies, please consider including Alpha USA among your charitable beneficiaries. In your will, you can name Alpha USA the beneficiary of a set amount, a percentage of your estate, or a percentage of your residual estate after you have taken care of your loved ones. If you have already written your will, it is usually very easy to create a codicil, or amendment, to your will. A codicil with specific changes, witnessed and notarized, is typically accepted into probate with the original will. If you need specific language to include in your will, contact the Vice President of Development at 1-800-362-5742 or kylewallace@alphausa.org.

Annuities and Other Life Income Gifts

Alpha USA can help you establish a charitable gift annuity that will pay you or a loved one an annual income for life. The remainder of the investment, when you no longer need it, goes to Alpha USA.

If you are a younger donor, a deferred gift annuity can help you plan for your retirement. By investing now and deferring the start of income payments until you reach retirement age, your initial investment has more time to grow.

In either case, the donor receives a tax deduction for part of the initial investment, plus a guaranteed revenue stream that is partially tax-free. Alpha USA receives the remainder. Each charitable gift annuity is unique to the circumstances of the donor. To learn more, discuss your options, or receive a customized annuity illustration, please contact the Vice President of Development at 1-800-362-5742 or kylewallace@alphausa.org.

IRA and Stock Gifts

Owners of Individual Retirement Accounts must begin taking Required Minimum Distributions at age 70 1⁄2. After that, a permanent tax provision allows you to make gifts to Alpha USA and other qualified charities directly from your IRA. These gifts are subtracted from your Required Minimum Distributions and do not count as revenue on your taxes. Because this type of gift actually reduces your income, it offers tax benefits even if you do not itemize your deductions.

Giving stock directly to Alpha USA may allow you to increase your gift and your tax deduction. When you give stock shares, you generally take a tax deduction for the full fair market value, which may be more than your original investment. Giving stock may offer significant advantage over giving cash, or selling your appreciated securities and contributing the after-tax proceeds.

Please contact Finance at 1-800-362-5742 and let us know the type of stock and the number of shares you plan to donate. This will allow us to properly track your donation and ensure that it is transferred correctly and that you are properly credited and acknowledged.
