Ways to Give

Supporters and friends of the Association of Science-Technology Centers who wish to make a contribution to ASTC are able to consider giving in the following ways:

Gifts of Cash

Cash donations are a convenient way of giving. Cash gifts are fully deductible for federal income purposes – ASTC is a 501 (c) 3. Gifts of cash can be made over the phone by calling 202-783-7200, made online by clicking theĀ DONATE button, or sent to our office at: Association of Science-Technology Centers Attention: Accounting 818 Connecticut Avenue, NW 7th Floor Washington, DC 20006-2734


A pledge allows a donor to consider a more significant gift by splitting payments over five years or over successive months.


Readily marketable securities, such as those traded on the stock exchange or in the over-the-counter market, may be accepted by ASTC.

Planned Giving

This method of giving to ASTC entails giving through various gift instruments, such as charitable remainder trusts, gift annuities, charitable lead trusts, life insurance, bequests, retirement policies and 401(k)s.
