Effective April 1, 2016, Beyond OCD will join forces with and transfer its educational and financial resources to the Anxiety and Depression Association of America (ADAA). We are proud to pass the torch we've carried for OCD to this exceptional organization, and we're confident ADAA will continue and further our mission with compassion and professionalism.

Other Ways to Donate

Matching Gift Programs

Many employers have matching gift programs. This means that you can generally double any gift you make by participating. Contact your Human Resources Department and ask -- matching gifts multiply your generosity.

Ask your workplace giving representative to support Beyond OCD.

If you donate to Community Health Charities or United Way, including workplace donations, you can direct them to contribute a portion of your donation to Beyond OCD . Contact your United Way chairperson at work.

For Community Health Charities workplace giving opportunities please call 1- 800 654-0845 to learn how you can donate. Beyond OCD is very pleased to announce that they are the newest charity partner for Community Health Charities.

Gifts of Securities

Gifts of highly appreciated stocks can give donors a great result. If the stocks are owned for more than one year, the donor can deduct the entire fair market value of the gifted shares and pay no capital gains tax on the appreciation. Contact Sally A. Ruecking, our President & CEO, at 773-661-9530 or sruecking@beyondocd.org before you sell any profitable stocks or other securities.

Create a Legacy of Giving to Help Those Who Suffer with OCD

You do not need to be wealthy to create a legacy to benefit those tortured by a life with OCD. A future gift is easy to create, can be changed throughout your lifetime and may someday help thousands of OCD sufferers. There are two easy ways to make a legacy gift:

  • The simplest way is to provide a fixed amount or percentage gift in your will or living trust. Your attorney can draft a simple one page codicil to your will or amendment to your trust when you create or revise your estate plan. Click here for sample language.
  • You can also name Beyond OCD as a beneficiary of a life insurance policy.

For more information on making a gift to Beyond OCD as part of your estate plan, contact Sally A. Ruecking at 773-661-9530 or sruecking@beyondocd.org .

Help Us Build Support

If you or someone you love has been helped by our information and support, you can become part of our fundraising team by sending out our annual fundraising letter in November with a personal note to friends and family members. We will send you a complete mailer for every recipient, with special cards on which you can write personal notes. Contact us at 773-661-9530 or contact Sally A. Ruecking at sruecking@beyondocd.org .
