Good ideas. Make it a mutual benefit society, get a non-profit charity
incorporation, and you only need to donate 5% of the association's
organs to non-members to retain the non-profit tax deductible status.
Then the word gets out that you are 20 times more likely to get an organ
if you join the club...moreover, allow the person donating to deduct the
value of the organ from their income or probate taxes as a typical
charitable donation, and you have instant probate protection of a good
$250,000 to $1 million in assets when your estate is settled.
