Legacy Giving

Legacy giving is smart giving. A legacy, or planned gift can become a truly impactful way to ensure access for all to health, housing, and human services at Volunteers of America.

Gifts of Stock

Your gift of stock will change the way the world can help all people reach their full potential.

Gifts of appreciated securities (stocks) are a popular alternative to making a cash gift as they may offer you additional tax advantages. In addition to receiving an income tax deduction for the full market value of the securities, you may also avoid capital gains on the appreciation of your stocks. If your donated securities are used to fund a charitable trust or gift annuity there may be estate and gift tax advantages as well.

To make such a gift, do not sell the stock and donate the proceeds, as this will jeopardize your tax benefits. Instead, notify your broker and contact our Philanthropy Office at:

Gift with Cryptocurrency

A gift of appreciated cryptocurrency to join Volunteers of America’s work in transforming lives of our neighbors can help you avoid capital gains taxes and get a big tax deduction. Donating cryptocurrency is safe, easy, and tax efficient. Follow this link to our partner site – helping us efficiently process your cryptocurrency gift.

Indiana Neighborhood Assistance Program

Receive a tax credit with your donation.

The Indiana Housing and Community Development Authority offers Neighborhood Assistance Program (NAP) tax credits annually for distribution to Indiana donors by eligible nonprofit organizations. For each dollar you give to Volunteers of America, you will receive 50% of the gift value in tax credits to reduce your state tax liability for that tax year. There is a $100 minimum donation requirement to participate in this program, and NAP credits are distributed on a first come, first served basis. Donors must reside in Indiana to qualify for this program.
