What will your legacy be

Helping Mark Lalli rediscover his purpose after a severe injury. Giving Lisa Crutch a sense of belonging again. Supporting Sean Karpf’s wife and children so they can support him.

This could be your legacy when you make a planned gift to WWP.

With your help, the programs and services that allow our warriors to heal and thrive will continue for years to come.

Make your mark on a warrior’s life

There’s no one-size-fits-all approach to helping warriors on their path to recovery. Similarly, there’s not just one way to support WWP, we offer several ways to make a charitable bequest.

Through your will:
Many donors add WWP to their wills. You can choose to name WWP for a specific amount, or for a percentage share of your estate. Plan your gift today, and know that you will be leaving a legacy of healing.

Through a trust:
A trust lets you give to the charities you care about now, and for years to come. And with tax savings for you and your beneficiaries, it’s a choice that not only makes a difference – it makes sense.

Through a beneficiary designation:
Naming WWP as a beneficiary of your estate lets you give certain assets to WWP after your lifetime. Donors typically designate retirement accounts, bank accounts, life insurance policies, and stock and investment securities. In some cases, if WWP is the owner and beneficiary of an insurance policy, your premium payments can be tax-deductible.

Whichever way you choose to give, your donation ensures that every day is an opportunity for our warriors to make connections, pursue new careers, take on physical challenges or simply realize they are not alone.

How do I arrange for a charitable bequest?

We recommend you work with a legal advisor to make any changes to your will or planned giving arrangements. They will support you in deciding what’s right for you and your estate.

Once you’ve drawn-up arrangements, we’ll need a copy of your will or trust.

Mail your paperwork to:
Attn: Legal Department
Wounded Warrior Project, Inc.
4899 Belfort Road, Suite 300
Jacksonville, FL 32256

Our legal department in Jacksonville will be standing by to help you through the process. If you need proof of our tax identification number, we’re happy to send you a signed W-9 or IRS Determination Letter.

And if you have any questions at any point, call us at 904-405-1156, or send an email to bequests@woundedwarriorproject.org

We recognize you. We honor you.

When you make a planned gift, you become a lasting part of our legacy.

We’ll acknowledge your contribution by making you a lifetime member of the Honor & Empower Society. You’ll also receive a certificate of appreciation and public recognition of your donation.

It’s our privilege to recognize and celebrate the community that champions our warriors. Together, we’ll help every warrior reach a future where they know they belong and have a valuable role to play.
