We’re Making an Impact
In remote villages in India, Bangladesh and Nepal, OneWorld Health is helping children suffering from kala-azar, a disease that is nearly always fatal if left untreated. Learn more about our work around the world.
Help us support our mission
Corporate matching programs can effectively support the work we are doing at OneWorld Health. Your charitable gift of estate assets can ensure our efforts continue into the future. Whatever your personal choice about giving is, we will make sure OneWorld Health has the right giving option that meets your needs.
Double or triple your donation to OneWorld Health with a corporate match. To find out if your workplace has a matching gift program, please contact our development office at (650) 392-2510, or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Gifts in Honor or Memorial
A contribution to OneWorld Health in honor or in memory of someone brings special meaning to your gift. We will send a letter to those you designate to receive notification of your honor or memorial gift, so please include the name and address of any individual(s), friends, family members or colleagues you would like to notify.
Make an Honor or Memorial Gift online, by phone at (650) 392-2510, by fax at (650) 392-2524, or by mail to OneWorld Health, 280 Utah Ave., Suite 250, South San Francisco, CA 94080.
Gifts of Stock and Securities
OneWorld Health welcomes gifts of stock and securities, which may also help a donor avoid capital gains tax on appreciated securities. All such gifts are US tax deductible to the full extent provided by the law. In most cases, gifts of stock or securities can be completed through a simple transfer of assets between financial services firms.
There are many ways to aid OneWorld Health now and in the future by making a planned gift. By providing OneWorld Health with an ongoing source of income, planned giving enables us to make the multiple-year investments required to develop cures for life-threatening diseases.
When you name OneWorld Health in your will, it means that your support for our work will continue into the future. A bequest can be a designated amount, a percentage, or the amount that remains after other bequests have been honored.
Life insurance is another way to donate to OneWorld Health. There are a number of different options in this area. You can: name OneWorld Health as a beneficiary to receive a certain percentage of your life insurance; donate a paid-up policy, which enables you to take a tax deduction in the amount of the replacement value of the policy; purchase a new policy and designate OneWorld Health as owner and beneficiary (all of your premiums are then tax-deductible); buy life insurance to replace a bequest (this enables you to take the tax deductions now); or designate OneWorld Health as a secondary or final beneficiary, which means that if your primary beneficiary(ies) predeceases you, OneWorld Health is then the beneficiary and the amount we receive when the time comes is deducted from your estate taxes.
Life Income Gifts
A charitable annuity trust, and a charitable unitrust are both ways of making a life income donation to OneWorld Health. During your lifetime, you will receive payments from the investment of your gift, with the knowledge that you will be helping us in the future. Other benefits of this approach to giving may include tax deductions and savings on estate and inheritance taxes.
Giving retirement assets enables you to fulfill your charitable goals while removing a potential tax burden from your heirs. Unlike your heirs, OneWorld Health does not have to pay income taxes on the assets. Through retirement assets, you may be able to make a larger donation to us and reserve nontaxable assets for your heirs. You may also use retirement assets to establish a charitable trust, designating OneWorld Health as the final beneficiary. Your spouse or other loved ones will receive payments from the trust for the duration of his/her life, after which we receive the remainder, with no estate or income taxes levied, to continue our work.
