When donating to MedicAlert, you are helping make a difference! Your gift also qualifies you for a tax write-off, reducing your tax burden for the year.
With 2014 coming to an end, keep in mind that donations charged to a credit card are deductible in the year in which they are charged and not when payment is made on the card.
