An endowment gift to Pink Alliance today provides a hope for others in the future. When you make a donation to our endowment, you provide a gift with both immediate and long-term benefits. Endowment donations are invested. A portion of the annual income from the investment is used to provide funding support for annual grants and patient services.
The remaining funds are reinvested to ensure indefinite support to sustain the good works of Pink Alliance into the future.

fund-raise, volunteer, advocate, support!
With an all-volunteer board, what more can we say …..but WE COULDN’T DO IT WITHOUT YOU and the support of amazing business partners, health care advocates, community volunteers and breast cancer survivors. We are grateful for your support and whatever time, talents or resources you have to share. On behalf of your community and the next person affected by breast cancer, we thank you in advance.
If you are interested in helping with our annual Surviving & Thriving Breast Cancer Awareness Luncheon or Paint the Town Pink, please let us know.
Here is some sample language to share with your attorney if you would like to include Pink Alliance in your estate plans:
"I give, devise and bequeath to Pink Alliance, a not-for-profit organization having its administrative offices in Bryan, Texas, for the use of its activities in the support of annual grants and related program support, the sum of _____ dollars and/or ___ shares of capital stock of _____coorporation and/or the following described property ______ and/or ___% of my residuary estate."
The IRA charitable rollover provision permits individuals age 70 and older to make charitable donations of up to $100,000 from Individual Retirement Accounts (IRAs) and Roth IRAs without having to count the distributions as taxable income. The IRA Charitable Rollover is intended to benefit donors of all income levels. You should consult with your tax or legal counsel to make sure that you meet all the criteria and that your intended gift will qualify under this provision.
Making Pink Alliance the beneficiary of a life insurance policy is one of the simplest ways of providing a bequest to further the good works of Pink Alliance. Also, the substantial leverage involved in insurance would afford you the capability of gifting a significant amount for a relatively small cost; in return you would probably receive an income tax charitable deduction. Please consult your accountant or legal counsel for additional information.
If you were thinking of locking in some of your capital gains this year, consider the more tax-efficient alternative of donating shares of appreciated mutual funds or stock to Pink Alliance instead. You can deduct the current market value of the gift for income tax purposes, just as if you had made cash payment. As an added advantage, you will avoid any capital gains taxes you would have owed if you had sold the assets instead.
