DOING THE MOST GOOD WITH YOUR DONATIONS.
When making a substantial gift to The Salvation Army, there are a
of creative giving options available, which, though at first may
can easily be worked out to the benefit of not only
The Army and those we serve, but to you and
your loved ones as well.
Often, by making a planned gift, you can reduce capital gains or
inheritance taxes, retain income
for life, secure an income tax
deduction, and/or actually increase the benefit of your estate to your
Loved ones after passing away.
WILL/TRUST BEQUEST LANGUAGE
It is not enough to make a bequest that simply reads "To The
Salvation Army of Central Ohio..." as there
is no such organization legally
recognized by this name. The Salvation Army operates in Ohio as
York Corporation, and this corporation has predetermined how to allocate
the eastern United States that have not been
planned in accord with specific criteria. Please contact
Giving office for proper bequest language consistent with your legacy
goals so that we
can ensure your generosity stays local.
When you choose to make a planned gift to The Salvation Army, you
should consult your professional
financial advisor or attorney. We will
be happy to provide information and work with your advisor to
your gift. Thank you for your interest in supporting the work of The
