Thank you for your interest in supporting the work of The Salvation Army. With proper planning, you, your family, possibly even your family business and your favorite charities, will be able to benefit from your goodwill. For example, by donating you can reduce your capital gains or inheritance taxes, retain income for life, secure an income tax deduction, and/or increase the net value of your estate for your loved ones.
If you are considering including The Salvation Army as a beneficiary of your will or estate it is important to note that there is no such organization legally recognized as "The Salvation Army of Springfield". The Army operates in our region as a New York organization. An estate gift not made according to specific criteria will be allocated throughout the eastern United States according to the laws of New York as well as the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB). We can help construct the proper bequest language consistent with your legacy goals to ensure your charitable intent is allocated entirely local.
