Donor Advised Funds

Donor Advised Funds are an easy, flexible, cost effective way for donors to contribute to the causes they are passionate about while also receiving an immediate tax benefit.

Donors can also make gifts of appreciated stocks through Donor Advised Funds.

Our federal tax identification number is 13-3505372.

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.

Employee Matching Gift Programs

You can maximize the impact of your generosity by having your employer match all or part of your donation to the 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.
