Endowed Gifts

Your Gift Can Last Forever

An endowment gift to DAV (Disabled American Veterans) today provides a brighter picture for our future. When you make a donation to an endowment, you give a gift with both immediate and long-term benefits.

Endowment donations are invested. A portion of the annual income from the investment is used to address immediate needs at DAV. The remaining funds are reinvested to ensure indefinite support.

FreeWill

DAV has partnered with FreeWill to provide our friends and supporters with the opportunity to write a legal will at absolutely no cost. Begin your free will at freewill.com/DAV, ensuring your legacy will help serve more than a million disabled veterans each year!

An Example of How It Works

Couple Smiling Longtime DAV supporters Susan and Charlie have two goals: First, they want to make sure DAV continues to receive support after they're gone. Second, they want to memorialize Charlie's parents, Mr. and Mrs. Jones.

Susan and Charlie make a $100,000 donation to DAV, which we invest, and each year, a portion of the income from the invested money will be used to support our mission in honor of the Joneses. Plus, Susan and Charlie qualify for a federal income tax charitable deduction on their taxes.
