Your Donation Changes Veterans’ Lives

Nation’s Finest is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. We provide critical services and support to America’s military veterans and their families, helping them to achieve self-sufficiency and reach their full potential.

There are many reasons to make a charitable gift to Nation’s Finest — and your passion for helping veterans and their families is likely at the top of that list. Friends like you have made it possible for us to provide exceptional and compassionate care to over 7,000 veterans each year, since 1972.

Read on to learn how you can support Nation’s Finest through ways that include making a gift today, planned giving, and hosting and attending fundraising events.

Give Today

Nation’s Finest has pressing needs to meet every day. When you give an outright financial gift, you make our current work possible and help shape the future of care for veterans and their families.

Outright gifts include:

We are a nonprofit organization dedicated to improving the lives of veterans and their families. All donations are tax-deductible to the fullest extent permitted by law. Your generous gift directly helps support the care we provide at all 31 Nation’s Finest locations.

Give Tomorrow

At Nation’s Finest, planned giving and other types of planned philanthropy advance our mission and help improve and expand the care we provide, benefiting veterans today, tomorrow, and beyond. To ensure we meet the wishes of our donors, our giving programs include careful planning and thorough consideration, as our knowledgeable fundraising staff consults with donors, their families, legal professionals, and wealth advisors. Together, we’ll develop a plan for giving that aligns with your specific tax objectives and estate planning needs.

  • Bequests: Maintain full control of your financial resources during your lifetime and reduce your taxable estate by including Nation’s Finest in your will or living trust.

  • Charitable Gift Annuities: Provide a lifetime income to you and/or a loved one and earn a current income tax deduction with a gift of cash or property.

  • Gifts of Life Insurance: Earn an immediate income tax deduction and a possible premium deduction by designating Nation’s Finest as the beneficiary of a life insurance policy.

  • Gifts of Real Estate: Transfer the burden of managing a property and the expense of taxes with a gift of real estate.

  • Gifts of Retirement Plans: By naming Nation’s Finest as the beneficiary of your retirement account, such as a 401(k) or IRA, you can avoid passing on heavy income and estate taxes to your heirs.

  • Gifts of Stock or Electronic Cash Transfers: Our Development Office works in partnership with individuals and their financial institutions for these transactions.

  • Endowments and Naming Gifts: Give your family name the opportunity to represent something special at Nation’s Finest. These giving opportunities are closely aligned with a donor’s interest such as building, room or equipment namings, or program-specific namings.
