MDA For Strength Independence & Life

Ways to Get Involved

Together with our generous supporters, MDA is fighting to free kids and adults from the harm of muscle-debilitating diseases so they can live longer and grow stronger. We need caring individuals like you to help us bring more treatments, the best care and life-changing support to families today.

Charitable Bargain Sale

How it Works

  • You sell your residence or other property to MDA for a price below the appraised market value — a transaction that is part charitable gift and part sale.
  • MDA may use the property, but usually elects to sell it and use the proceeds of the sale for the gift purposes you specified.

Benefits

  • You receive an immediate income tax deduction for the discount you took from the appraised market value of your property.
  • You pay no capital gains tax on the donated portion of the property.
  • You can receive payment from us in a lump sum, or in fixed installments.
