Giving to ACTCM
If ACTCM has made a difference in your life, consider giving back the gift of harmony, balance, and health by making a contribution today. Your support can have a critical impact on countless patients, students, and teachers seeking a better path to healing.
Your annual pledge helps the health of thousands of patients and trains hundreds of students to become highly capable, compassionate TCM professionals each year. Even the smallest contribution counts.
Your Gift Makes an Immediate Impact

- $5,000 resources six months of an off-site clinic, providing acupuncture to underserved persons with limited access to health care.
- $2,500 sponsors one Faculty Fellowship Award, giving a faculty member the freedom to explore a new area of medicine.
- $1,000 supports a Student Scholarship, enabling a student to obtain specialized training in subjects such as pain management, cancer, or pediatric care.
- $250 funds one clinic shift for a doctoral student treating low-income patients.
- $100 brings a guest lecture to campus to share new trends in TCM patient care.
Make a long-term impact on generations of patients, students, and professional healers and transform the future of ACTCM through your estate plans and will, retirement assets, or life insurance benefits.
- Will or Living Trust: A gift to ACTCM through your will or living trust can take any of a number of forms. You can identify a specific dollar amount, or a portion of what remains after your obligations to others are fulfilled. You can designate your bequest to support the
- ACTCM General Fund, or direct your gift to a specific program, project, or scholarship. If you are considering donating to ACTCM through your will or living trust, please contact us to ensure that ACTCM fulfills your philanthropic wishes. We can also provide further information about estate planning and the benefits of naming ACTCM in your will.
- Retirement Plan Assets: Retirement plan assets are an excellent avenue for supporting ACTCM, and provide compelling tax incentives. Because ACTCM is a qualified 501 (c)3 charity, when you name the college as a beneficiary, we can receive all proceeds from such retirement plans without having to pay any income tax. By naming ACTCM as a beneficiary, you may also qualify for a reduction in estate taxes, thus increasing the actual amount you pass on to your heirs. Talk to your financial planner or the administrator of your retirement plan about how to designate ACTCM as a beneficiary.
- Gifts of Life Insurance: Life insurance gifts are another way to contribute to ACTCM. Such gifts benefit the college and provide tax incentives to the donor. Talk to your financial advisor or insurance policy administrator about naming ACTCM as a beneficiary of your life insurance.
