A Gift That Honors a Life

Memorials and Tributes

If you have a loved one who has been impacted by the Shenandoah Valley Battlefields Foundation, establishing a memorial or tribute gift is a meaningful way to honor your loved one or celebrate a special occasion such as a birthday while supporting battlefield preservation. Your memorial or tribute gift will be a lasting tribute to your loved one and make a difference in the lives of those we serve.

Check Out This Potential Scenario

Couple SmilingWhen Sarah's father passed away, she knew she wanted to do something that would establish a lasting legacy for him. She remembered that during his lifetime he was always praising the SVBF for its tireless efforts of battlefield preservation. So Sarah decided to make a gift to the SVBF in her father's name using appreciated securities. Not only will her father's legacy live on at the SVBF thanks to the gift and a commemorative plaque, but Sarah also received a federal income tax charitable deduction (because she itemizes her taxes) and eliminated capital gains tax on the securities.
