Your Gift Can Last Forever
An endowment gift to the VFW today provides a brighter picture for veteran's future. When you make a donation to our endowment, you give a gift with both immediate and long-term benefits.
Endowment donations are invested. A portion of the annual income from the investment is used to address immediate needs at the VFW. The remaining funds are reinvested to ensure indefinite support.

An Example of How It Works
Longtime supporters Susan and Charlie have two goals: First, they want to make sure the VFW continues to receive support after they are gone. Second, they want to memorialize Charlie's parents, Mr. and Mrs. Jones.
Susan and Charlie make a $25,000 donation to the VFW, which we invest, and each year, a portion of the income from the invested money will be used to support veterans and their families in honor of the Joneses. Plus, Susan and Charlie get a federal income tax charitable deduction on their taxes because they made a lump-sum gift.
