Giving and Tax Benefits

You are here

Great tax benefits exist for those who give. Here are some of the gifts and associated benefits you should know about.

 

Charitable Lead Annuity Trust

Make a substantial gift to the Medical University of South Carolina Foundation in the form of fixed annual payments and pass assets to your family or other heirs at reduced tax cost.

Charitable Lead Unitrust

Make a substantial gift to the Medical University of South Carolina Foundation in the form of variable annual payments and pass assets to your family or other heirs at reduced tax cost.

Retained Life Estates

Donate your home, farm or a second home to MUSC and receive an immediate income tax charitable deduction, while retaining the right to live in your home for the rest of your life. If you itemize your deductions instead of taking the standard deduction you could save significant income taxes. If you cannot use your entire deduction in the year of your gift, you may carry forward all unused deduction for up to five additional years if you are able to itemize in each of those years.

Bargain Sale

Receive immediate cash and make a gift to the Medical University of South Carolina Foundation by selling to us a valuable asset, such as real estate, for less than it is worth.

Donor-Advised Fund
