Planned Giving

VVSD Planned Giving

With your generous support, our veterans have a safe place to live, compassionate care for Post-Traumatic Stress and Traumatic Brain Injury, focused case-management in overcoming addiction and practical assistance in securing life sustaining employment. These are the building blocks that maximize human potential and the very mission of Veteran Village of San Diego (VVSD).

Your participation means everything to our success. By participating in the VVSD planned giving program, you’re ensuring that these building blocks continue to support our veterans.

Here are a few planned gifts you will find beneficial.

Remembering VVSD in your will or living trust is a personal way to extend the influence of your life. Your gift may be in the form of a percentage of your estate, a set amount or the entire estate. Your gift may include cash, securities, in-kind or property. Informing VVSD of your estate plans allows us to thank you now for your contribution.

Charitable Gift Annuity
A charitable gift annuity is an opportunity to make a commitment to supporting the work of VVSD.

A charitable gift annuity is a transfer of your financial assets or real estate to a charity that pays you a fixed income for the rest of your life. Depending on your age, you can receive between 4.7 % and 9% return on your gift. Upon your death the remaining principal is transferred to VVSD.

Payable-on-death (POD) Bank Accounts
Payable-on-death (POD) bank accounts can be a marvelous estate planning tool. You can add VVSD as a POD beneficiary to your bank accounts and CD’s. A POD payee inherits whatever money is in the account upon your death and avoids probate.

Life Estate Gifts
A life estate gift is a wonderful choice for those interested in leaving their home to VVSD. With a life estate gift, you deed your property to Veterans Village of San Diego now, but reserve the right to continue living in the home. You receive a charitable tax deduction the year the gift is made.

Additional Gifts
Cash, Securities, IRA’s & Pension Plans, Life Insurance and Real Estate.
