Major Gift Giving

The Salvation Army's good works are all made possible by good people just like you! Your donations to The Salvation Army help us serve the most vulnerable members of our community and with our legendary stewardship, each dollar has maximum impact to change live for GOOD.
Identified by author and management expert Peter Drucker as "by far the most effective organization in the United States," The Salvation Army invests the charitable gifts it receives in the lives of men, women, and children who need a hand up.
"No one even comes close to it in clarity of mission, ability to innovate, measurable results, dedication, and putting money to maximum use," Drucker said. 
Donation—by check or credit card

A gift of cash is a simple and easy way for you to make a gift.

You will receive a charitable tax deduction that will provide you with savings on this year's tax return.   

Stock or mutual fund transfers

Potential benefits:

Avoid paying capital gains tax.
Receive a charitable income tax deduction.
Enjoy possible increased income.

IRA rollover gifts, direct transfer, real estate

Did you know that 50%-60% of your retirement assets may be taxed if you leave them to your heirs at your death? Another option is to leave your heirs assets that receive a step up in basis (such as real estate and stock) and give the retirement assets to our organization. As a charity, we are not taxed upon receiving an IRA or other retirement plan assets.
