More Ways to Give
Toys, Books & Games
Due to COVID-19, all in-person toy donations have been temporarily suspended, but you can still make a difference for our patients! If you are looking for ways to donate, items from the Scottish Rite for Children's Amazon Wish List can be delivered right to our door.
To browse our Wish List, please visit our Patient Wishlist on Amazon.com for developmentally appropriate items our kids would love.
Real Estate & Securities
Our staff is experienced in facilitating a range of real estate gifts and can provide more information about this process. Please call the Development department at 214-559-7886 or 800-421-1121, ext. 7886, with questions or to discuss a proposed gift. Individuals will receive an income tax charitable deduction for their gift in accordance with the current Internal Revenue Code.
An individual may make an outright gift to Scottish Rite by transferring their stocks or bonds. A gift of securities entitles the individual to an immediate income tax deduction typically equal to the fair market value of the securities.
