Online Donations

You can make an immediate difference through an online contribution today. We use a secure donation processing service that accepts Visa, Mastercard, Discover, and American Express. Information is only used for transactions and will not be shared with any other party.

For assistance with an online donation, please contact [email protected] or 773.834.4077 for more information.

Matching Gifts

When you make a matching gift, you can double or triple the impact of your contribution. Many employers sponsor matching gift programs and will match charitable contributions made by their employees. Ask your human resources department about your company's matching gift policy. Some companies also match gifts made by retirees and/or spouses.

Please contact our Development Coordinator at [email protected] or 773.834.4077 for more information.

Tribute Gifts - Gifts that Honor

Tribute gifts are a thoughtful way to honor someone important in your life while celebrating a birthday, anniversary, or any special occasion. These gifts can also serve as a special expression of sympathy by honoring the memory of a friend or relative.

The Bulletin acknowledges your gift and notifies the honoree or appropriate persons that a tribute donation was made. The amount of your gift is kept confidential.

Make your gift to honor someone today. For assistance, please contact our Gift Officer at [email protected] or 773.834.2308 .

Giving By Mail

If you prefer to mail in your gift, please make a check or gift reply card out to “Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists" and mail to:

Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists
PO Box 15461
1510 E. 55th Street
Chicago, IL 60615-2598

Please contact our Development Coordinator at [email protected] or 773.834.4077 for more information.

Giving Through Mutual Funds, Stocks, and Securities

An outright gift of stock can benefit both you and the Bulletin. A gift of long-term appreciated securities, either publicly traded or from a closely-held company, may provide you with greater tax advantages than a gift of cash. For more assistance and transfer instructions, please contact Colleen McElligott at [email protected] or 773.834.2308.

Giving Through an IRA Charitable Rollover

Are you 70 1/2 or Older? IRA Charitable Rollover is now PERMANENT! The Protecting Americans from Tax Hikes (PATH) Act of 2015, which was passed by Congress and signed into law on December 18, 2015, made permanent what is popularly known as the IRA charitable rollover.

Please contact our Gift Officer at [email protected] or 773.834.2308 for more information.
