Planned Giving Legacy

Yours Can be Written on Lives.


Every wife and husband should to be ready to handle the details and decisions that follow a spouse’s death and also to deal with financial and practical matters.

The Salvation Army has a new publication on this subject, Preparing to Be a Surviving Spouse. This publication enables spouses to organize information that will be needed at death: listings of people to contact, vital documents and important telephone numbers.

It also offers helpful ideas to enable both husbands and wives to understand the financial aspects of their partnership. For example, if your spouse typically pays all the bills, consider taking over that assignment for the entire month of his or her birthday. We invite you to request your free copy by clicking here.

The Salvation Army also offers a Personal Affairs Record for individuals, which is a rich reservoir of vital information in short, all the facts, figures, names and numbers that play a role in your life and in the lives of your beneficiaries.

Planned Giving Options Overview

The Salvation Army's Planned Gifts Program offers a complete selection of alternatives as a means of reducing taxes, increasing income, and fulfilling your charitable goals.

We look forward to working with you to help determine the one most appropriate for you.

Gifts of Appreciated Stock can be the ideal choice for those who want to make an impact with their charitable giving at a substantially reduced cost. The secret is in the double tax benefit.

Through a Bequests in your Will, you can help ensure the work of The Salvation Army will continue to meet the needs of those in the Southern New England area.

If you are over 55, and seeking a safe and secure investment for cash or stocks worth $5,000+, and desire income for the rest or your life, a Charitable Gift Annuity is a great vehicle for you.

If you are planning for retirement, and you want to have assured, high yield income after you stop working, a Deferred Gift Annuity may be perfect for you.

If you have over $100,000 to invest, and you want to help direct the way it is invested, a Charitable Remainder Trust is the way to go.

If you are in high-earning, high-tax years, are seeking a tax-wise means of passing principal on to your heirs, while still providing a charitable intent, a Charitable Lead Trust, is very effective.

An alternative to a Bequest is a Beneficiary Designation of your bank account(s), Life Insurance Policies or Retirement Accounts.
