"HIV is not an easy virus to defeat. More than 600,000 people still die every year from the virus because they don’t know they have HIV and are not on treatment, or they start treatment too late." - World Health Organization

Your gift to Western North Carolina AIDS Project will empower individuals in vulnerable communities to seek diagnosis and medical case management so they can live long, healthy lives lives free of stigma and discrimination. 

 WNCAP’s Tax ID # is 58-1772685.


There are 37,200 people with HIV
in North Carolina. Connecting people
to HIV care within one month of
is a critical step in reducing 
transmission and ensuring 
healthy, and fulfilling lives.



When someone with HIV takes their medicine regularly, they become virally suppressed and have efectively no risk of sexually transmitting HIV. 

Pay by Check:      

Checks can be made out to WNCAP and mailed to:

IRA Charitable Gifts:      

Individuals age 70.5 and older can distribute up to $100,000 from their IRAs to Western North Carolina AIDS Project without counting
the distribution as income. 

Good News:
The ability to make a gift directly from IRA accounts is now a permanent part of the U.S. tax code. The gift amount counts toward your
Required Minimum Distribution (RMD), and your taxable income is lowered by the amount of your qualified charitable distribution (QCD).


Important points to consider:

 Gifts must be completed before December 31 to be eligible in the current tax year.
 You must be at least age 70½. 

 The gift should come directly from your IRA account, in the form of a check. 

 The gift may come from a Traditional or a Roth IRA (special exclusions may apply to other types of IRA accounts). 

 Although there is no tax deduction, there is NO income tax on the withdrawal.
