sustain our programs

A planned gift, through your will, estate, life insurance or annuity will help The Salvation Army sustain and serve future generations.

The Salvation Army relies on the generosity of donations and foundation grants to meet the basic needs of our programs and services.  Often, how a gift is made can have dramatic impact on helping meet a donor’s long and short-term objectives.

Thanks to our government’s ongoing encouragement of the private support of charities, most gifts to a qualified charitable organization come with tax benefits.  However, in many situations it is possible to receive more than just a charitable income tax deduction.

Certain types of donations allow donors to bypass capital gains taxes on appreciated assets, significantly reduce estate taxes and establish a new source of income for yourself and your family.

The professionals in our Office of Planned Giving help you match your gift with your objectives. They provide with no obligation, confidential information that will ensure that your gift – whether cash, insurance, stock, property or a gift in trust – is timed to meet your objectives and deliver maximum value.

Your support is greatly appreciated and we are available to provide you with information and assistance in this important matter. If you need wording to include The Salvation Army in your estate plans, creating a life income for you and your loved ones, or in updating or creating your estate plans, please do not hesitate to contact Mark Romano toll free at 800-758-2769.
