Do you have property or estate that is just sitting there? Do you not know what to do with it and find yourself frustrated? Well, the great news is that there are now many options for fixing this problem. Donate! Yes, you can donate your real estate to the Turner Syndrome Foundation (TSF). Think of all the people in the Turner Syndrome (TS) community you could help by donating your property to TSF today!
TSF Needs YOU!
TS is a random chromosomal disorder affecting female births. There are over two million people in the U.S., and millions around the world, living with TS. Some health concerns for those with TS include cardiovascular disease, kidney and thyroid issues, diabetes, and hearing loss.
TSF is a small, non-government-funded nonprofit that supports the TSF community through its awareness, advocacy, education, and research initiatives. Free resources are available to those affected by TS to help them thrive. TSF provides critical services for the millions of individuals and families affected by the condition.
Real Estate Donation
Donating real estate to TSF can help you take some weight off your shoulders. Your property, at some point, may have been something that meant a lot to you or someone who passed it on to you. However, if you are having difficulty maintaining it or do not know what to do with it, real estate donation can help change someone else’s life. In some cases, the capital gains taxes you would need to pay if you sold make it smarter to donate. You could possibly receive a large tax deduction (consult your tax professional or financial advisor).
TSF has partnered with Giving Property, a real estate donation program offered through the nonprofit CARS (Charitable Adult Rides and Services). CARS is a nonprofit that helps thousands of other nonprofit organizations in the U.S. and Canada increase their fundraising and gain new supporters through vehicle and real estate donation programs.
