Planned giving, sometimes called charitable gift planning, provides an opportunity for those who value the Naval Historical Foundation and want to preserve its legacy for generations to come. When assessing your long-term giving plans, please consider including a long-term gift through your Will. By simply adding a Codicil to your Will, you need only to add the name of our organization and the amount of money or percentage of your assets that you wish to donate to the Foundation. You may want to consult a tax advisor for more information.

NHF greatly values these deferred gifts, which prove that “Where There is a Will, There is a Way.” In addition to providing valuable long-term support, you will also receive valuable tax benefits that could reduce the amount of taxes that are paid when your estate is settled. It’s a win-win situation for all who value preserving naval history and supporting the long-term viability of the Foundation to be able to Preserve Naval History, Honor Those Who Came Before US, and Educate and Inspire Those Who Will Follow.

You may donate stocks or bonds to the Naval Historical Foundation. The process is fairly easy. We provide you our investment account number and routing number for you to pass to your broker so that funds can be electronically transferred. Our acknowledgment of your donation will indicate value based on current market rates.
