Monetary Gifts can be made in memory of a loved one or in honor of them. Perhaps there is no more fitting compliment to a loved one's life than to bestow blessings on those in greatest need in their honor. >Read more




Giving an outright gift of cash and goods is not always the optimal choice when making a substantial gift to The Salvation Army. There are a number of creative giving options available, which, though at first may seem complicated, can easily be worked out to the benefit of not only The Army and those we serve, but to you and your loved ones as well. Often, by making a planned gift, you can reduce capital gains or inheritance taxes, retain income for life, secure an income tax deduction, and/or actually increase the benefit of your estate to your loved ones after passing away.  >Read more

The most effective way for us to respond immediately to disasters is with monetary donations. While we will often call for specific items to be donated, these items call for storage and transportation resources that often cost additional money. With monetary donations, we can fulfill the most needs with the least expense. >Read more   




An outright gift of long-term securities (owned more than one year) to The Salvation Army is free of capital gains tax, no matter how much their value may have risen. Therefore, it is better to donate appreciated long-term stock outright than to sell it yourself and then donate the money to charity, in which case you would be responsible for the capital gains tax. A gift of stock also allows you to remove the appreciated asset from your taxable estate. >Read more 




When you donate clothes, furniture and household items to The Salvation Army of Waco, your used goods are sold at The Salvation Army family store. 100% income raised through the sale of these items goes directly back into our Social Service Program. >Read more
