DALLAS (April 14, 2022) – Ryan, a leading global tax services and software provider, recently partnered with Southwest Transplant Alliance (STA), a nonprofit organ and tissue procurement organization, securing $9.2 million in New Markets Tax Credit (NMTC) allocation.
In September 2020, STA opened its corporate headquarters and state-of-the-art, in-house recovery center in Dallas. The first of its kind in the southern U.S., STA’s Legacy Center is transforming organ and tissue transplantation through innovative technologies and a holistic approach to donor and donor family care. At 77,000 square feet, The Legacy Center enables STA to recover organs and tissues for lifesaving transplants, spearhead advanced transplantation research, train organ and tissue recovery professionals, and educate communities about its mission.
Construction of The Legacy Center was completed in 2020, but additional capital will support the organization’s ongoing facility needs and fully outfit an additional surgical suite for organ and tissue recovery. This $9.2 million NMTC allocation will be utilized for capital improvements, including technology and equipment that will help the organization save more lives.
“We are grateful to Ryan for their partnership in the New Markets Tax Credit process and to CityScape Capital Group and Pacesetter CDE for this generous contribution to Southwest Transplant Alliance,” STA President Brad Adams said. “At STA, our mission is to serve families throughout our community and save as many lives as possible with a constant commitment to innovation and creativity. With these partners and this new financing option, we’re able to further equip The Legacy Center to save and improve the lives of our community for years to come. Without the NMTC allocation from CityScape Capital Group and Pacesetter CDE, STA would not have a clear timeline or the required capital for purchasing this equipment.”
“We are honored to have played a part in this milestone for STA, helping them secure these important New Markets Tax Credits,” said Sharon Welhouse, Ryan’s Credits and Incentives (C&I) Practice Leader. “The C&I team at Ryan is focused on helping our clients achieve their goals through innovative financing strategies, and our partnership with STA is a perfect example of just that. We look forward to continuing to work with STA as they grow and positively impact the community.”
