Leaving a legacy that remains long after we move on is important to us as individuals. Making a planned gift is a wonderful way to show your deep regard for the Navy League of the United States and its mission while achieving your own personal, financial, estate-planning and philanthropic goals. With smart planning, you actually may increase the size of your estate and/or reduce the tax burden on your heirs. Just as important, you will know that you have made a meaningful contribution to the Navy League. Your philanthropic commitment reflects your life and values, and, in turn, the Navy League honors and deeply appreciates your dedication to sustaining its mission through your bequest provision or other type of deferred gift.
“A man has made at least a start on discovering the meaning of human life when he plants shade trees under which he knows full well he will never sit.”
— D. Elton Trueblood
The 1902 Society was established to recognize and thank those who have made a commitment to the Navy League through their will, a trust, a gift annuity, a life insurance policy, or other type of deferred gift. Because all planned gifts represent an expression of confidence in the Navy League, the 1902 Society has no minimum gift level — membership is for life — and there is no membership fee. Founding-member status will be conferred on all those who enroll in the 1902 Society between now and the June 18-22, 2014, National Convention in San Diego, Calif. Afterward, founding-member status will be retired as a classification. If you have made or are considering making a deferred gift to the Navy League and are interested in discussing joining the 1902 Society, a legacy organization, please contact us.
