You don’t have to be rich to create an endowment fund that will provide a permanent source of income for Salvation Army programs.

This is how it works:

  • You make a donation that is held in trust by The Salvation Army.
  • You and your friends can add cash gifts – and other gifts such as insurance policies, charitable gift annuities, and securities .
  • If you wish, you can create your own fundraising events to generate revenue.
  • If your fund is $10,000 or more, you can name it after yourself or a loved one.

We can help you decide what kind of gifts will best suit your circumstances and offer the most generous tax advantages. You will receive an income tax receipt for each donation you make during your lifetime. Other contributors will receive their own receipts. Best of all, your gift will last for years to come.

We strongly encourage you to seek independent advice when executing gifts of securities, property, life insurance, charitable gift annuities, wills, trusts, contracts and other legal agreements.
