Leave a Legacy That Honors & Empowers Wounded Warriors

Why Your Gift Matters

Planned gifts are a way of leaving a meaningful legacy in support of a charitable organization that matters most to you. Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP) exists to serve wounded warriors and their families, and our service to those brave men and women is never ending.

Thanks to the generosity of the public, we provide free, life-changing — and lifesaving — programs and services to wounded warriors and their families. Planned gifts help ensure these vital programs and services can continue to exist, not only for this generation, but also for generations to come.

WWP recommends consulting with an attorney, financial planner, or other licensed professional when considering or making changes to your planned giving arrangements. This information does not constitute legal, tax, or financial advice.

When You Give

A gift to support wounded warriors as part of your planned giving arrangements is deserving of recognition and thanks. When you include WWP, you become a lifelong member of the Honor & Empower Society.

As a member of the Honor & Empower Society, you’ll receive:

  • A CERTIFICATE OF APPRECIATION letting others know of your support of wounded warriors and their families.
  • A PUBLIC RECOGNITION OF YOUR GIFT (only with your permission; you may give anonymously if you prefer)

If you have already included WWP in your planned giving arrangements, please let us know so we may invite you to join this exclusive group.

How To Give

Through your will:
A will expresses your wishes as to how your property is to be distributed after your lifetime. Through a written will, you name one or more persons, usually an executor or personal representative, to manage your estate until its final distribution. This is a very popular way of giving gifts to charity — a gift you can arrange now to create a legacy.

Through a trust:
Through a trust, your assets are managed so they may extend into and well beyond your living years. You specify through the trust what assets are to be included, who is to manage and decide matters, who will benefit, and when and how long the benefits will be received. There are different types of trusts based on your desires and needs. The benefits of a charitable trust include letting you donate generously to the charities of your choice during and after your lifetime, while also receiving and providing significant tax savings for you and your beneficiaries.

Through a beneficiary designation:
A beneficiary designation allows you to identify who receives ownership of certain assets after your lifetime. Beneficiary designations are common with certain types of assets, such as retirement accounts, bank accounts, life insurance policies, and stock and investment securities.
