Help Us Fundraise

The best way to help Sound Off is by getting the word out. We’re a young organization, so our biggest barrier is a lack of name recognition. You can help us by sharing our mission with your friends and family. Below, you’ll find a few ways to help us.

Email

Email your friends and family to share Sound Off’s mission and suggest they donate. Sharing the importance of supporting Veteran and Service mental health is critical to continuing our mission. Here’s an example of an email to a friend. Feel free to use our sample email as a template!

Social Media

Connect with us online and share our cause with your friends, families and followers.

Host an Event

The absolute best way to help Sound Off fundraise is by hosting a fundraiser from your home. We help with everything, so it’s not as hard as it sounds! Together, we choose a date, build the guest list, and design what the event should look like. We’re very flexible when it comes to planning, but to give an example, we usually do a two-hour cocktail event with about 30 people. At the event, our founder William Negley and spokeswoman Sydney Mulder will speak for about 30 minutes followed by a question session. If you’re interested in hosting an event or would like to know more, please email Emily at emilyp@sound-off.com.

Planned Giving

Leave a Legacy That Honors & Empowers Veterans and Service Members

Why Your Gift Matters

Planned gifts are a way of leaving a meaningful legacy in support of a charitable organization that matters most to you. Sound Off exists to support our Veterans’ and Service Members’ mental health.

Thanks to the generosity of the public, we connect our heroes with free, anonymous mental health support via professional therapists and/or trained peers. Planned gifts help ensure this vital program can continue to exist, not only for this generation, but also for generations to come.

How to Give

A will expresses your wishes as to how your property is to be distributed after your lifetime. Through a written will, you name one or more persons, usually an executor or personal representative, to manage your estate until its final distribution. This is a very popular way of giving gifts to charity — a gift you can arrange now to create a legacy.

Through a Trust
Through a trust, your assets are managed so they may extend into and well beyond your living years. You specify through the trust what assets are to be included, who is to manage and decide matters, who will benefit, and when and how long the benefits will be received. There are different types of trusts based on your desires and needs. The benefits of a charitable trust include letting you donate generously to the charities of your choice during and after your lifetime, while also receiving and providing significant tax savings for you and your beneficiaries.

Through a Beneficiary Designation
A beneficiary designation allows you to identify who receives ownership of certain assets after your lifetime. Beneficiary designations are common with certain types of assets, such as retirement accounts, bank accounts, life insurance policies, and stock and investment securities.
