Legacy Brigade

The Legacy Brigade honors those who choose to support Veterans Outreach Center with a planned gift.  Planned Gifts include all donations made as part of a person’s overall financial and/or estate planning and can be fulfilled in one of several ways:

  • A life insurance policy distribution
  • A portion of your estate through a will, retirement plan, trust, etc.
  • A Gift Annuity or Charitable Trust than can provide income to you and your beneficiaries
  • A gift of real estate
  • A gift of stock or appreciated securities
  • A tax-distribution from your IRA

If your estate plans include Veterans Outreach Center, please let us know, using the button below, or by calling Jennifer Gibson, Development Director, at 295-7805.

 
I must admit, I have been rather disappointed in recent years regarding some of the actions of some Veteran support groups. I have long felt that our Veterans Outreach Center has been a model for others to follow … Rest assured I will continue to support the Center through both donations and support of the Flag Store.

United Way

Did you know you can designate part or all of your United Way donations to directly benefit the VOC?  It’s easy! When filling out your UW paperwork, simply designate agency #1119 in Rochester.  In Buffalo, you can write our name in as the organization to whom you would like to designate your gift.

Your donations support our programs, which are offered at no cost to veterans.  These include counseling, career training and education, benefits support, peer mentoring, art therapy, and more.  Whatever the program, our staff and volunteers are there to help veterans and their families each step of the way.  

Contact Jennifer Gibson at 295-7805 or Jennifer.Gibson@vocroc.org


In-Kind Donations

The kindness and generosity of our donors help us to offer the best and most up-to-date services possible to our Veterans. One great way to help us is to purchase items from our Amazon Wish List.  The items on the list are supplies we purchase regularly to support our daily activities, and if we do not have to purchase them, it will enable us more cash to spend directly on our programs.  The items will ship directly to our door, so you will not have to deliver them to us.  Thank you in advance for supporting VOC and the wonderful people we serve! 


Vehicle Donations

Are you thinking of selling or trading in that old car, truck, boat, RV, or snowmobile? Why not donate it instead? A charitable contribution of your vehicle could make a big difference in the lives of local veterans. Donating your old vehicle to The Veterans Outreach Center is convenient, easy, and may qualify you for a tax deduction. And best of all, your donation of a used car or truck will make a big difference in supporting programs at VOC.

All you need to do is contact our vehicle donation partner, Vehicles for Charity at 1-866-628-2277 or complete their simple online form. Vehicles for Charity will pick up your vehicle for free, process the DMV papework, and sell the vehicle at auction. You will receive a tax receipt from Vehicles for Charity and proceeds from your donation will come to Veterans Outreach Center to support our programs. Your donation is tax deductible to the full extent of the law.
