Gifting Strategies
For our donors who would like to donate investments to our organization - you CAN!  A nice gifting strategy that many people utilize is a donation of appreciated investments.  This in turn allows for a possible charitable deduction to you in addition to being able to forgo large taxable gains of that holding!  We have partnered with TD Ameritrade and will be happy to give you the transfer instructions to provide to your financial organization.
Attention KidneyTexas donors age 70.5+  - for those of you who don't know, you can donate your RMD (Required Minimum Distribution) from your IRATax-Free!  Here are a few items to know about this gifting strategy in order to keep it tax-free to you:
1)  The distribution must come from the IRA directly to the charitable organization/institution (it cannot go to you first)
2)  Limit is $100,000 per donor out of the IRA per calendar year
3)  Generally, the donation must be made by December 31st of the year of your Required Minimum Distribution

Mission Statement: The purpose of KidneyTexas, Inc. is to provide funding to improve the methods of treatment, the search for a cure and prevention of kidney disease and other kindred or contributory diseases; and to develop more adequate provision for the care of persons suffering from such diseases.
Statistics: Debilitating kidney diseases impact approximately 20 million people in the United States today. Groups at high risk include African Americans, Hispanics, senior citizens and people with diabetes. In Texas, there are over 30,000 people on dialysis and 4,000 on a transplant list. The number of patients on dialysis is anticipated to double this decade.
History: Since 1999, the dedicated volunteers of KidneyTexas, Inc. have worked in tandem with our generous underwriters to raise over $3.1 million for local efforts to improve the ability to diagnose and manage kidney disease. 
Each fall KidneyTexas, Inc. hosts its Luncheon & Style Show in an effort to raise money for designated beneficiaries and awareness for a disease that affects millions of people each year. The success of this event depends heavily upon the contributions and dedication of our Dallas business and community leaders, and we're asking for your support. 

From our President Andrea Alcorn:

The Spring Tea was such a spiritual day when we launched the Kidney Texas upcoming year of festivities with Kickoff tea chairs Sharon Friedberg and Marie Quintana sponsored by Dee Lincoln Prime, Shotz and Gold Crown Valet at the home of Debby Mullen and Tim Alexander. Lynn Townsend Dealey, we thank you for the beautiful logo design! Our theme this year is Transforming Lives and we will. In a big way! We have celebrity events. If you aren't already a member, Hope you sign up so you are notified of the celebrations. We have huge surprises coming all year.

Thank you, Andrea!!
