How to Help

Wheelchairs for Nigeria Needs Your Help

One wheelchair costs $150. Our shop is building about 150 wheelchairs every month, which means we need more than $16,000 every month to keep up production. Won't you help transform the lives of children or adults that otherwise spend their lives crawling on the ground? You can make an online tax-deductible donation by clicking the donate button above, or you may mail a check to:

Monthly Gifts

A number of our supporters have set up regular monthly gifts through the Bill Pay service of their bank, or through PayPal online. That makes it automatic each month, and you don't have to try to remember to mail a check. Regular giving is most helpful. Just think how rewarding it would be to know that you have transformed a child's life every month!

Over 19,000 Corporations Match Gifts. Does Yours?

Your generous donation helps build wheelchairs, and your employer's matching gift program can help even more. A company match can double the impact of your gift at no extra cost to you. Since Wheelchairs for Nigeria is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, it should be eligible for all employee matching gift programs.

Birthday or Christmas Gifts

Does the person on your gift list already have everything? Why not give one or more wheelchairs in their name? A certificate and a page of pictures can be sent to acknowledge the gift. Instead of trying to find a gift they probably don't need and may not use, they will know that a child's life has (or children's lives have) been transformed in their name.

Gifts of Appreciated Stock

You may have stocks that have appreciated greatly in value. Instead of selling the stock and paying capital gain tax on the profit, you can transfer the shares to Wheelchairs for Nigeria and get a tax-deduction for the market value on the date of the transfer. This frees you from any capital gain tax liability. Your shares can be transferred to Wheelchairs for Nigeria's account with TDAmeritrade, which will then be sold and the proceeds used to build wheelchairs! Call Dr. Ron Rice at 206.932.6129 or

IRA Charitable Rollovers

The IRA Charitable Rollover provision of the Taxpayer Relief Act is now permanent. This allows individuals who are 70 1/2 or older to give tax-free gifts to charity from traditional or Roth IRA accounts. No charitable deduction can be taken by the owner, but distributions qualify for all or part of an IRA owner's Required Minimum Distribution.
