River Falls American Legion Post 121 Foundation
Honoring the sacrifice of those who served by enhancing the lives of veterans, their families and communities.
Service Today/Service Tomorrow
The River Falls Post 121 Foundation seeks to assure Post 121 services to veterans and to the community are secure now and for future generations.
With St. Croix Valley Foundation providing professional investment management the foundation has created two funds.
The first fund provides a non-profit umbrella for donations to the Post's many service activities. Within this fund the Post honors your wishes to target your donation to particular Post service.
The second fund, the Legion Legacy Fund, is an endowment where funds are set aside to secure Post's good works are here for future generations. Only the earnings are used, meaning that a dollar given today will still be helping veterans 10 years from now and beyond.
Regardless of the fund you choose your gift is tax exempt under 501 C3 of the Federal Tax Code, including transfers directly from your IRA or other retirement account. Of course, you can remember the foundation in your will or trust. Talk to your financial adviser or lawyer about your many giving options.
However and whatever you give, know that your donation makes a difference to a life, a family, a community.
