Other Ways to Donate

See below to learn more about how you can donate to our Mazol Shriners Patient Transportation Fund.

Life Income Agreement – Persons contributing $5,000 or more can participate in the Shriners Hospitals for Children Pooled Income Fund. Under this agreement, donors, or their designees, will receive the annual income from their contributions during their lifetime. A portion of the contributions may be deducted as a charitable donation.

Real Estate – Real estate may be deeded outright to Shriners Hospitals for Children, or, if it is a donor’s residence or farm, may be given subject to retained life interest. The value of the interest being contributed may be used as a charitable contribution for income tax purposes.

Securities – Contributions of securities may be easily accomplished. If the donor’s securities have appreciated in value at the time of the gift, there can be income tax and other advantages to the donor.

Insurance – Shriners Hospitals for Children may be designed as the irrevocable beneficiary of an insurance policy. The hospitals would thus be assured of a definite sum in the future. The cash surrender value and annual premium may be deducted as a charitable contribution.

Wills – Designations of bequests should clearly indicate Shriners Hospitals for Children. Bequests under wills may reduce estate taxes.

Trusts – Irrevocable charitable remainder unitrusts or annuity trusts may be established to provide for lifetime payments to the named beneficiaries. Upon the death of the surviving income beneficiary, assets would be utilized by Shriners Hospitals for Children for its charitable purposes.
