The Fisher House Legacy Society

The Fisher House Foundation Legacy Society is a special group of donors like you who wish to ensure that the Fisher House mission continues for many generations. Including a gift in your estate to Fisher House Foundation is a powerful way to support our nation's military heroes for decades to come. Whatever the size of your estate, you will have the personal satisfaction of knowing that you are helping keep families connected during their loved one's medical treatment.

Appreciated Securities

You can bequeath gifts of stock, mutual funds, IRAs, or cryptocurrency. If you would like to avoid capital gains tax on appreciated stock, mutual funds, or cryptocurrency today, speak to your financial advisor or accountant about donating these assets.

Beneficiary Designations

You can make Fisher House Foundation a beneficiary of assets that are typically not covered in your will, such as IRAs, 401(k)s, pensions, payable-on-death bank and brokerage accounts, and life insurance policies.

Use this simple online service through our partners at FreeWill to plan for these assets; name Fisher House Foundation as a beneficiary at no immediate cost; and receive instructions on setting beneficiary designations up with your broker.


A bequest in your will or trust is an easy way to provide for families while also helping to secure Fisher House Foundation's future. You can either leave Fisher House Foundation a specific dollar amount or a percentage of your estate.

If using an attorney to create your will, please include Fisher House Foundation’s EIN (#11-3158401) and complete mailing address (12300 Twinbrook Parkway, Suite 410, Rockville, MD 20852) in your will.

If you elect to use FreeWill, this information will appear automatically when you make your selection.
