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.

Gifts of Personal Property

How It Works

  • You transfer a valuable painting, antiques, or other personal property to MDA.
  • MDA may hold and display the property or use it in the furtherance of its mission.
  • MDA may sell the property at some point in the future and use the proceeds for its mission.

Benefits

  • You receive an immediate income tax deduction for the appraised value of your gift and pay no capital gains tax, so long as the gift can be used by MDA to carry out its mission.
  • In certain cases, you can use personal property to fund a life-income gift that provides you and/or other loved ones with an income now and benefits MDA in the future.
  • Without giving cash during your life, you can make a gift that is immediately beneficial to MDA.
