Gift of Personal Property Diagram

How It Works

  • You transfer a valuable painting, antique, or other personal property to Mercy Medical Center Merced Foundation.
  • Mercy Medical Center Merced Foundation may hold and display the property or use it in the furtherance of its mission.
  • Mercy Medical Center Merced Foundation may sell the property at some point in the future and use the proceeds for its mission.

Benefits

  • You receive an immediate income tax deduction for the appraised value of your gift and pay no capital gains tax, so long as the gift can be used by Mercy Medical Center Merced Foundation to carry out its mission.
  • In certain cases, you can use personal property to fund a life-income gift that provides you and/or other loved ones with an income now and benefits Mercy Medical Center Merced Foundation in the future.
  • Without using cash, you can make a gift that is immediately beneficial to Mercy Medical Center Merced Foundation.
