There are many ways you can support Spirit of Martyrdom (SOM). We offer things such as…

  • Annual Fund Donations: Gifts may be made by check or credit card and can support the general operations of SOM, or be restricted to particular area. You can click here to do online giving.

  • Stock Gifts: You can donate your appreciated stock directly to SOM. Please call the office at: 928-634-1419 for instructions.

  • Charitable Remainder Trusts: These gift instruments allow you and/or your loved ones to benefit from monies placed in the trust during your/their lifetime. Upon the death of the named beneficiary, the remaining balance in the trust is transferred to SOM.

  • Perpetual Income Trusts: These gift instruments allow the income from monies you place in trust to benefit SOM in perpetuity. The principal of your gift remains intact for the life of the trust, and the income it generates is transferred periodically to SOM.

  • Life Insurance: You can name SOM as the beneficiary or partial beneficiary of your life insurance policy or transfer ownership of the policy directly to SOM.

  • Charitable Gift Annuity: You can give a one-time gift to SOM in exchange for fixed or recurring payments over the balance of your life. Upon your death, the balance of your original gift is maintained by SOM for its general use.

  • Testamentary Gifts: You may make provision in your will to provide a specific bequest to SOM, or provide for some or all of your remaining estate to be given to SOM upon your death.

Each of these gift avenues has specific tax implications. Please contact your attorney or financial advisor for further information. For additional information on making a gift to SOM, please call 928-634-1419 or email Mary Taylor, our Certified Financial Planner at: mhuntley@ifgrr.com
