Gift of Stock
Donating appreciated stocks or securities to the Medicare Rights Center may sometimes be more advantageous than gifts of cash. Here’s why:
Gifts of appreciated securities can may reduce the tax you pay on capital gains.
In some circumstances, you can deduct the full value of the stock as a charitable contribution.
Please consult your financial advisor to determine the tax implications of making a gift of stock to the Medicare Rights Center. You may donate a gift of stock electronically. If you do decide to donate stock, please notify the Medicare Rights Center or have your financial advisor or broker do so, providing your name, the name of the contributed stock, the number of shares, and the date of the transfer.
You can maximize the impact of your generosity by having your employer match all or part of your donation to the Medicare Rights Center. Donors interested in this opportunity should obtain the necessary matching gift form from their employer (usually found in the Human Resources office), complete it and then mail it to:
Medicare Rights Center

Corporate Giving Opportunities
Our corporate partners are a significant source of funding for our programs—and we often have specific employees of those corporations to thank for bringing our needs to their companies’ attention.
A corporate gift to the Medicare Rights Center is wise for a number of reasons—it helps us reach more people who need assistance with Medicare, makes the corporation’s stakeholders feel good about the business, and is tax-deductible to the full extent of the law.
