Leave a Legacy of Hope for Veterans and Their Families

Planned Giving Is For Everyone

Many VFW National Home for Children supporters choose to leave a donation in their wills and trusts as an important way to have long-term impact, without any upfront cost during their lifetimes.


Making a will is one of the most impactful ways to extend your love and generosity for your family and friends. It can also help provide homes to our nation’s veterans and their families.


By leaving a gift to VFW National Home in your will or trust, you are building a powerful legacy of support and love for our country’s heroes.


Legacy giving isn’t only for the wealthy — gifts of any size are deeply appreciated, and there is a wide range in gift sizes from $50 to $1 million.


"We are honored to leave a legacy at this place of peace and healing" -

Linda and Jerry Peterson
