There are many ways to make a difference in the lives of struggling military and veteran families at the VFW National Home for Children.
There are so many ways to give, many that may be something you already do.
Are you 70.5 years old or older and do you have a traditional IRA? You can minimize your future tax burden and make a donation to us from your IRA. If you are 72 years old or older and have to take a Required Minimum Distribution (RMD), you can give to the VFW National Home for Children and save on taxes.

If you have any appreciated stocks, you can help us make sure that military children and families have a place of healing, support, and refuge— while saving on taxes! Before the end of the year, you can avoid the capital gains tax and make a powerful impact caring for those who have been left behind by war. Use this this free online tool to donate stocks today. No sensitive
personal information required, and the tool will walk you through the steps in minutes.
The National Home’s Amazon wish list is a great way to buy items that are needed for the day-to-day running of the National Home. You could buy something small like snow shovels or hand sanitizer or organize a fundraiser to purchase bigger-ticket items like playsets for the nursery.
Amazon has a great program that helps raise money for nonprofits while people shop — AmazonSmile. Here’s how it works:
1. AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the purchase price from your eligible purchases to the National Home.
3. Then log in to your Amazon account and start shopping!
