Planned Giving Support for Military Families

For more than forty years, military families of all ranks and Services have depended on us. We help families of combat-weary service members, optimistic children anxiously awaiting a parent’s return, spouses seeking educations to better their families or prepare for the unthinkable, widows coping with their losses, and proud parents of single service members. We do whatever it takes to resolve challenges for these families and guide them to a better place. Our work is especially critical during wartime.

You, too, can make a lasting impact on the lives of military families. Your planned gift will help us provide them with the support they need for years to come.

There are many different ways for you to include the National Military Family Association in your estate plans. The following information may help you explore the best gift option for you:

  • Include the National Military Family Association in your will
    Including a bequest to the National Military Family Association in your will or trust is one way to commit to the wellbeing of military families and can be the foundation of a lasting legacy. Sample language can be as simple as “I give and devise to the National Military Family Association (Tax ID #52-0899384), located in Alexandria, VA, the sum of $(name amount here) or (name asset here) to be used for its general support of military families."

  • Make a gift from your retirement account
    Retirement plans such as IRAs, 401(k)s and 403(b)s allow you to designate a beneficiary to receive all or part of the assets in your plan. Naming the National Military Family Association as a beneficiary of your retirement plan assets may enable you to give more to a favorite cause, while helping your family avoid the tax burden associated with these funds.

  • Make a gift of life insurance
    Gifts of life insurance that are no longer needed may offer excellent tax benefits and will allow you to make a very significant gift to support military families. You can name the National Military Family Association as the beneficiary of a new or existing life insurance policy. You may also designate the Association as the owner of a policy.

If you would like us to help direct you or your attorney to initiatives that better support your personal interests and supply the customized language, please contact us. We can also help if you would like to make a legacy gift in the name of an honoree, living or deceased.

Although we cannot answer legal questions, we would be happy to help with any questions you may have about our Associations or giving opportunities. Just call the Development Team at 703.931.6632 x327.
