Plan a Gift: Make a Difference FOREVER
With a planned gift, you can make a significant contribution that will not impact your current financial situation. You may designate HVN as the recipient of assets in the future, or you may make an immediate gift of an asset that you do not require as part of your current resource portfolio. A strategically planned estate or deferred gift can offer tremendous mutual value―potential tax and other financial benefits for your estate and heirs, as well as impact in perpetuity for HVN.
As you develop your charitable vision, it is important to consider how your giving strategy might affect your overall financial picture and family; therefore, please consult your attorney and other professional financial advisors.
The simplest planned gift, the charitable bequest offers a straightforward opportunity to make a substantial contribution to further the work and mission HVN without drawing on your current resources. Add a clause to your will or trust that states that you give a percentage, specific amount, named asset, or the remainder of your estate to HVN. We would be pleased to assist you with wording upon request.
You may name HVN as a beneficiary of a Life Insurance Policy, a Retirement Fund, IRA, 401(k) or Keogh Account, a Savings Account or a Certificate of Deposit.
Trust and Annuities: Provide Multiple Benefits
- Charitable gift annuity
- Charitable lead trust
- Charitable remainder trust
- Pooled income fund
- Life estate contract
Trusts and Annuities
In some cases, these options provide a means of making a significant gift while retaining a life income. Along with federal tax benefits, there are corresponding restrictions. Examples include:
The HVN Legion of Honor Society
When you have completed your estate plan and have arranged for a bequest to HONOR VETERANS NOW, simply inform us in writing that HVN has been included in your estate plans. As a planned giving donor, you are invited to become a member of the HVN Legion of Honor Society, our special recognition group for those making the ultimate commitment. Of course, you have the option to remain anonymous, as well.
HVN has produced this information to assist you in the consideration of an estate or planned gift. HVN does not provide or purport to provide legal, tax or financial planning counsel. You are urged to consult and rely upon the opinion of qualified legal, tax and financial planning advisors before acting on any of the concepts described here.
Through your profound generosity, thoughtful planning and vision, you can make a gift with eternal impact―perpetuating the care and feeding America’s most courageous heroes for generations to come.
We could not achieve our objectives without the partnership of feeding organizations, such as Meals on Wheels. These outstanding organizations help us exponentially expand the impact of your generous gifts to honor our nation’s struggling heroes under 60.
