Heritage Society/Hope Brigade

The Salvation Army’s Heritage Society is part of our national Hope Brigade, created to honor and recognize those supporters who have thoughtfully remembered The Salvation Army in their estate plans or through a specific planned giving instrument.

The Hope Brigade is our way of recognizing and thanking planned giving donors who will help us continue our life-changing work for years to come.

Members are recognized in various ways: a distinctive lapel pin, name included on the Heritage Society/Hope Brigade on our website (with permission), and updates on Salvation Army activities.

If you have included The Salvation Army in your estate or financial plans, thank you! Please let us know so we can honor you as a member of our Hope Brigade. Call us at 800-254-0229, or email:
