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.
Donating appreciated stocks or securities to the Medicare Rights Center may sometimes be more advantageous than gifts of cash. Here’s why:
