Gifts of Mineral Interests | The American Society for Dermatologic Surgery

Gifts of Mineral Interests

Help us contine our mission by donating mineral rights through your estate or trust and receive a tax deduction.


How It Works

  • You donate mineral interests to the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery.
  • We hold the interest and collect the proceeds, or we sell it and apply the proceeds to the purposes you designate.


  • You make a gift that benefits ASDS.
  • You make the gift outright or you may use it to create a life income gift that will pay you or your beneficiaries income for life.
  • You are eligible to claim a tax deduction based on the mineral interest's fair-market value at the time of the gift.
  • The value of the assets will be removed from your taxable estate.
