The Kramer Society is named after one of ABTA’s co-founders, Susan Kramer. Susan, along with Linda Goldstein, both had young daughters with brain tumors. Both Susan and Linda never could’ve imagined that their little foundation would grow into the international organization it is today.
They give credit to their special little girls – who brought so much love and sunshine to everyone around them – for giving them the inspiration to help others find answers and cope with this terrible illness. Through the ABTA, their promise is being fulfilled.
Donating stock (securities) to the ABTA is a way to help those impacted by a brain tumor diagnosis while receiving potential tax benefits. To make a stock donation to the ABTA:

3. Notify the ABTA in advance of stock transfers so that we can instruct our broker to accept delivery of your gift and acknowledge it properly for income tax purposes.

Donor-advised Funds (DAFs)
Think of a donor-donor-advised fund (DAF) like a charitable savings account.
It gives you the flexibility to recommend how much and how often money is granted. It may also help you eliminate capital gains taxes. And you decide when the assets actually leave your DAF and go to charity. Choose from a variety of options — including cash equivalents, mutual fund shares, restricted stock, cryptocurrencies, and more. It’s simple, flexible, and totally private. Talk to your financial advisor and then contact us.
With matching gifts, you can sometimes double or even triple your donation! Many employers offer matching gift programs. To find out if your company has a matching gift program, please enter your employer’s name above. If your employer is not listed, talk with your company’s human resources department.
