Leave a Legacy: Real Estate & Business Interests

Discover how to maximize your gift and create a legacy.

Donate to Barrow with a planned gift

Give a long-lasting legacy. When Barrow Neurological Institute was still in its early days, a generous gift of property in central Phoenix was utilized to fund neuroscience research. Eventually, funds from this gift were used to recruit a talented neurosurgeon, Robert F. Spetzler, MD. At Barrow, Dr. Spetzler went on to cement his legacy as one of the world’s greatest neurosurgeons and served as President and CEO of the Institute from 1986 to 2017.

Appreciated assets, including real estate, rental property, vacation homes, business assets, and business interests, are great ways to give to Barrow Neurological Foundation. Additionally, you do not have to gift all of a particular asset. There are ways to gift part of an asset and retain the remaining portion. There are some valuable benefits associated with gifting an appreciated asset, including leaving a long-lasting legacy.

All gifts must be reviewed prior to acceptance and comply with Barrow Neurological Foundation’s gift acceptance policy.

Ways to give

Gift of property

A gift of property allows you to save on appreciation taxes. Barrow Neurological Foundation can sell the asset tax free and you will receive a full-market-value tax deduction for the gift.

Give to a donor-advised fund (DAF)

A DAF is a charitable savings account that provides the same tax savings and deductions as giving to a charity. For more complicated gifts, Barrow Neurological Foundation partners with groups that will create a DAF to sell or hold an appreciated asset, such as a closely held stock or S-corporation stock.
