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.

Retained Life Estate

How it Works

  • You transfer your residence, farm, or vacation home to MDA subject to a life estate.
  • You continue to live in the property for life or a specified term of years, and continue to be responsible for all taxes and upkeep.
  • The property passes to MDA when your life estate ends.

Benefits

  • You can give us a significant asset, but retain the security of using it for the rest of your life. 
  • You receive an immediate income tax deduction for a portion of the appraised value of your property.
  • You can terminate your life estate at any time and may receive an additional income tax deduction.
