Gifts of Personal Property


How It Works

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


  • 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 the Association 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 the Association in the future.
  • Without using cash, you can make a gift that is immediately beneficial to The ALS Association.
